Come hear John Thomas Fowler at the Seneca Library on April 25

Posted by blair on

John Thomas Fowler is the author of Trotting Sally: The Roots and Legacy of a Folk Hero. Fowler tells two tales: the story of Trotting Sally, a once-familiar street musician to residents of the upcountry of South Carolina and western North Carolina; and the real man few knew — George Mullins, who lifted himself out of slavery and built a new life, brick by brick. Fowler fleshes out the public figure and reveals the private man behind one of the Carolinas’ most famous and elusive turn-of-the-century African Americans.

Mr. Fowler will be speaking at the Seneca Library on Tuesday, April 25 at 6 p.m. The book is available for checkout at all library branches.

This program is sponsored by South Carolina Humanities, a not-for-profit organization; inspiring, engaging and enriching South Carolinians with programs on literature, history, culture and heritage. (Funding also given by the Friends of the Library.)
