Flat Rock history via a road

Travelling back in time on a Flat Rock roadby Rob Neufeld             If you walk the one mile length of North Highland Lake Road in Flat Rock, you step nearly 200 years into the past.            At the east end, the 21st century reigns.  Fronting six-lane Spartanburg Highway, a super-Ingles sits above a bog; and a CVS store faces an Octopus Garden smoke shop, a chiropractor, a cell phone provider, and a six-lane avenue to I-26 a mile away .            Neither Ingles nor CVS carries the big…See More

Event Description

Thursday, May 8 at 7 pm


The author of so many favorites including Goldengrove, Blue Angel, The Lives of the Muses, Reading Like a Writer, Francine Prose turns to a story inspired by a photograph. The novel’s title, Lovers at the Chameleon Club, Paris 1932, alludes to the Georges Brassai photograph, Lesbian Couple at Le Monocle, 1932. The characters whose lives and fortunes unfold in the novel are based on Violette Morris, a real cross-dressing lesbian and Olympic athlete, Henry Miller, and Hungarian photographer Brassai. A unique look at Paris and Berlin in the 20s and 30s, Lovers is “[a] reading experience like none other-a shimmering library of possible truths and forking pathways…” according to Karen Russell (Swamplandia!). For her rarity, Michael Cunningham (The Hours) calls Prose “the Hope Diamond of literature.” Please don’t miss this event!

We are also hosting a special ticketed reception for Francine Prose from 5:30-6:30. Email for reception info.
