Aiken Center For The Arts-Author In Residence Outreach Program

The Aiken Center for the Arts is coordinating a series of “Author In Residence” programs featuring historian and author Dr. Walter Curry and his two books The Thompson Family: Untold Stories from the Past and The Awakening: The Seawright-Ellison Family Saga, Volume 1, a Narrative History. The books feature Aiken County history. Each participating school will purchase copies of the books to be used by the students and will have two engagement opportunities with the author. Currently, Schofield Middle School and Kennedy Middle School are confirmed for author residencies. More additional middle schools will be considered for the program.
