Black Ink: A Charleston African American Book Festival has announced author Beverly Jenkins as keynote speaker for the free virtual festival from Jan. 13-15, 2022.

The event is hosted by the Charleston Friends of the Library in partnership with the Charleston County Public Library and the College of Charleston’s Avery Research Center for African American History and Culture.

The Black Ink Book Festival celebrates Black authors in the Lowcountry and beyond and will feature Jenkins's keynote address along with other programs, panels and workshops.

The 22nd Annual McElveen Race for The Ark took place on Aug. 28, raising more than $30,000 with 400 participants. Race proceeds will benefit The Ark in its work providing comprehensive support services to families living with Alzheimer’s or related dementia.

The race included a 5K run/walk and one-mile fun run – both of which began and ended at St. Luke's Lutheran Church in Summerville.

SEALKIDS is celebrating its 10-year anniversary with a week of events in Charleston. A portion of the proceeds benefits the organization’s mission to foster the success and well-being of children in the Navy SEAL community.

This celebration, called Hooyah-Palooza, will take place Nov. 4-8 with events at Brewlab Charleston, The Citadel Beach Club and Home Team BBQ.

In recognition of National Friends of the Library Week, Rusty Bull Brewing Co. is donating $1 back to Charleston Friends of the Library for every pint sold from 4-8 p.m. Oct. 20.

By signing up to become a CFOL member at Rusty Bull, guests will also receive a special gift.
