Time - and Spots - Are Running Out!

Teresa Bruce wrote a book about a woman whom she came to love like a mother using not only her own memories but the Byrne Miller Papers here in the Beaufort District Collection.  Bruce shopped her manuscript around to New York publishers for three years without any takers. "I kind of felt like that book was my terminal illness, and I wanted to know what was wrong with it and get a diagnosis and fix it." Fortunately, Bruce ended up at Susan Kammeraad-Campbell's house where this talented and generous writer and editor devised a uniquely collaborative creative process called "pearls." And thus, The Other Mother was born!

Participants in the BDC@ BDC November 2014 workshop said that Susan's work was
  • “Cathartic”
  • “Therapeutic”
  • “Inviting”

Here is your chance to learn the basics of the Susan's "pearls" process at no charge to you.  We've bumped up the number of seats to 18 participants for this intense and intimate workshop but you will have to sign up in advance. Call Charmaine at 843-255-6468 to reserve your seat at this free BDC@ the Branches workshop! Charmaine's in the BDC Research Room, 10 am - 5 pm, Mondays through Fridays to take your call.

Please note: This workshop will be held in the small conference room of the Bluffton Branch Library located at 120 Palmetto Way, Bluffton, SC.  The two hour workshop will conclude at 3:00 pm. 

This workshop is the BDC's contribution to the Library's Maker Spaces initiative.
