Estate Planning Workshop

Estate planning is a topic people tend to put off or ignore, but it's also one of the most important things you'll ever do. Properly planning your estate helps prepare a secure future for yourself and for generations to come. Together we'll learn much more about estate planning, including what to consider when creating a will, the benefits of trusts in estate planning, how to reduce estate taxes and how insurance can help protect your family.

Kimberly Raber will be leading this presentation. Kimberly established her firm in 1991. She is a local native to South Carolina and an absolute pleasure to be around.

Fall Literary Festival (Virtual)

Great writers, readers, fans and friends will gather on three Wednesday nights this October for the Fall Literary Festival at the University of South Carolina. Now in its twenty-first year, the festival continues to bring unique and inspiring writing voices to campus.

This year, the festival welcomes the celebrated poet Nikky Finney, children’s book author and artist Kelly Starling Lyons, and novelist and short story writer George Singleton. They are part of a tradition that has brought more than 60 award-winning authors to campus for readings, book signings and other events – all free and open to the community.

The festival is a partnership between University of South Carolina Libraries and the Department of English, supported by the generous legacy of Libraries’ friend Dorothy B. Smith.
