Another upcoming event passed along from Dr. Paul Grady via the Spartanburg History Hub:

Dear Colleagues,

I am writing to share the exciting news that Dr. Walter Edgar, one of the most prominent historians in South Carolina and a National Public Radio personality, has agreed to speak at USC Upstate this year in commemoration of Constitution Day. Constitution Day, and corresponding activities during that week, is a national effort to increase the public and our students’ knowledge and understanding of the United States Constitution. Dr. Edgar will be giving a presentation entitled “South Carolina and the Constitution” that will discuss the importance of South Carolina in the process that gave shape to our modern nation and society. His talk will be held from 7:00-8:00pm in the Campus Life Center Ballroom on Tuesday, September 14th and will be open to the public. A selection of his most popular books on South Carolina history will be available at the event for purchase through the courtesy of the Hub City Bookstore and Dr. Edgar will be available for book-signing after his speech.

Given the relevance of the subject, especially with Election Day just around the corner, I am sure that you can see the opportunity Dr. Edgar’s visit and speech provides anyone interested in learning more about our state, our country, and our history. I hope that everyone will consider ways to incorporate this presentation into their own activities to encourage participation in this important event. I also hope that each of you will consider attending yourselves. Dr. Edgar’s reputation as a historian and commentator on Southern culture are outstanding and I can assure you that you will be glad that you came.
