The Charleston County Public Library offers the following free programs in March for children, teens and adults. 


American Injustice: Mercy, Humanity and Making a Difference

Throughout March

All CCPL branches

Participate in a variety of programs centered around the work of Bryan Stevenson, founder and executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative and one of the most acclaimed and respected lawyers in the nation. Stevenson, who will visit Charleston on March 31 for a free book signing and lecture at the Sottile Theatre, is the author of Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption, a memoir. In light of Stevenson’s visit, CCPL will feature programs that include book discussions, panel presentations and speakers to discuss how his life’s work can make a difference in the community.
