“Writing the South in Fact, Fiction and Poetry” will be held in Wall Auditorium at Coastal Carolina University Feb. 17 to 19, featuring influential writers from the world of literature and academe, including three Pulitzer Prize winners, an Emmy recipient and a popular Southern chef/cookbook author.

Join a distinguished lineup of writers including Natasha Treadway, Pulitzer Prize winning poet; Dan Carter, the only professional historian to ever win an Emmy, for his television documentary "George Wallace: Settin' the Woods on Fire"; David Hackett Fischer, a Brandeis University professor who won the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for "Washington's Crossing"; and Hank Klibanoff, managing editor of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, who won the 2007 Pulitzer Prize in History for his book "The Race Beat."
