Conversation with Lottie B. Scott
Author of Deep South-Deep North: A Family’s Journey
Thursday, July 30th @ 6:00 PM
In Deep South – Deep North: A Family’s Journey, Lottie B. Scott tells both the heartbreaking and triumphant tale of her maturation into adulthood against a racially-charged, impoverished, yet fiercely loving backdrop in Longtown, South Carolina. Scott traces her family history, peppered with familial violence and love alike. As the passing years turn to decades, and family members move north, Scott reveals how these bonds of love become a transformative power, forever altering the lives of each member of her family.
