Another successful year!

Thanks for making the 18th Annual SCBook Festival a success!

Thank you to all who participated in the 2014 SCBook Festival - presenting authors, exhibitors, sponsors, volunteers, staff, and attendees!  We had a blast and can't wait to do it again next year.  Mark your calendars for May 15-17, 2015!

Collectible Archibald Rutledge Book Now Available!

Archibald Rutledge (1883-1973) was South Carolina’s most prolific writer and the state’s first poet laureate. His nature writings garnered him the prestigious John Burroughs medal. His short story "Claws" was written for publication in an early twentieth-century boy's magazine and has been unseen by readers for a century. A new collectible edition of Claws has been published by USC Press, and proceeds benefit the SCBook Festival.
