t's hard to believe summer vacation for our kiddos and those angels...I mean already over. School is back in....the bells are ringing and the students are scurrying around campus in excitement of the adventures of the new year. A teacher (also called a school teacher or, in some contexts, an educator) is a person who helps others to acquire knowledge, competences or values. Wikipedia The definition of a teacher has always meant so much more to me. They are role models to our children, they are mentors to our next generation, they are caretakers of the hearts of our youth, they are heroes! Julie Hales, PUBLISHER All teachers do not sit in a classroom environment...they may be administrators, they may have a specific trade they share or a specific organization they represent. Recently, USC brought on the very first Dean of the Beaufort campus. Dr. Bob LeFavi has stepped into that role, and his plans for the USCB are nothing shy of amazing. I have personally known Dr. LeFavi for years as he has lived in my home town. I have known him as an educator. I have known him as a business owner. I have known him a a pastor. And, I have known him as a man of vision and dedication. I believe he will prove to be a valuable asset to this community. The story on the following pages will tell you more about Dr, LeFavi, both personally and professionally. You should read this story and get to know I feel certain you will be seeing his face all over town. On the following pages you will also see some important information from the Beaufort County School System for the 2018-19 school term. There is also a great article on the Port Royal Sound Foundation's Maritime Center. Hundreds of our youth walk through their doors each year. Read about some of the great programs they have to offer and about the STEAM festival they have coming up later this year. Also, our very own Paul Nurnberg shares information about the his photography business and is always open to speak to any youth (or adult) that may want to learn more about his profession. We have dedicated this issue to all of the wonderful teachers we have in our community...and applaud the dedication to their craft as they educate us all.

BACK TO SCHOOL Beaufort County Board of Education


ABOUT THE COVER Meet Dr. Bob LeFavi, the first Dean ever appointed to the USCB Beaufort campus. Dr. LeFavi is extremely passionate and excited about the revitalization of the Beaufort campus and fostering relationships between the community and the school.

AUGUST 2018 Paul Nurnberg The Man Behind The Lens | August 2018 09

New Dean of USCB Historic Beaufort Campus

Dr. Robert LeFavi

story by Cindy Reid photos by Paul Nurnberg


eet Dr. Robert LeFavi, PhD, DMin, the newly appointed Dean of the Beaufort campus of the University of South Carolina Beaufort. Dr LeFavi has the honor of being the first Dean appointed to the USCB Beaufort campus and is excited about his mission to enhance programs on the campus. He comes to Beaufort by way of Georgia Southern University, Armstrong Campus, where Dr. LeFavi was Head of Health Sciences and Kinesiology, a department with roughly 2,000 students. Dr. LeFavi has an impressive Curriculum Vita, having received his Ph.D. in Health and Human Performance from Auburn University, a D.Min. (Doctor of Ministry) from the University of the South, M.Div. (Master of Divinity) from Erskine Theological Seminary, M.B.A. from Nova Southeastern University and a B.S. in Health Education, from the University of Florida. Dr. LeFavi says, “I was in the university system of Georgia for twenty-eight years, and I genuinely enjoyed my time there. I had absolutely no intention of leaving. But, when I came across this position it hit an entrepreneurial nerve in me and I was immediately drawn to it. In fact, it now seems to me that everything I have done to this point has prepared me for the task of fostering the new programs on the Beaufort campus. I can approach it as an entrepreneur, an academic, a community

member, and even a parent. This position is extremely exciting to me. I don’t even feel as if I am going to work when I pull up to campus.” He says, “USCB has provided resources in order to re-focus energies to the Beaufort Campus. As I see it, what this campus needs is student life. USCB’s Beaufort Campus is a great place for students to study, work and have fun. Part of that is going to be creating an environment in which students will want to be on campus, hanging out on the lawn, throwing a Frisbee, simply enjoying being here. The resources – the landscape, city, academic buildings, walkability and beauty - are already here. I wish I had the option, years ago, of attending a beautiful university on the water, where I could have personalized attention in small classes from outstanding professors, walk everywhere and enjoy the history and natural resources of a place like Beaufort!” Academic Programs “The USCB Beaufort campus has excellent academic programs, such as Studio Art, and we will undoubtedly look at other academic programs that would be a natural fit to be developed and strengthened in Beaufort. Added to that, we now have Honors Biology and Honors Nursing programs in Beaufort, and I expect us to broaden our honors offerings,” Dr. LeFavi continues. “And that can all happen as we create a more vibrant campus environment. We now have a great start to creating such an environment; with the new dorms and their proximity to the campus we have a place for students to hang out, socialize and engage the community in an intimate campus feel.” Community Support “We are so fortunate to have the support of the community. It is extremely important to have local, experienced and interested community members step up, to provide support in various ways, including new and creative ideas, such as the dorm project,” Dr. LeFavi says, “Many individuals have been genuinely supportive in assisting us as this campus returns to not only its ‘glory days,’ but to even more glorious days.” “Both the campus and the community rely on each other, and in fact need each other. I have become immensely impressed with the unequivocal and broad-based support for the new programs on this campus throughout the entire community. The well-regarded Center for Fine Arts and the highly successful

OLLI program have brought many to the Beaufort campus. And while these points of contact strengthen the ties between town and gown, it is now time to start engaging these bright students with the community,” Dr. LeFavi says. New Dorms Next time you are on Boundary Street, take a look at the beautiful new dorms recently constructed at the intersection of Boundary and Newcastle, “In partnership with the University of South Carolina Beaufort, 303 Associates is developing a three-story, 24 apartment complex at the intersection of Boundary and Newcastle Streets that will have room for 92 students in USCB student housing,” (from the 303 Associates press release.) Dr. LeFavi says, “I am so thrilled to have a new housing complex as part of the Beaufort campus. In addition to students, the new dorms will also house Dorm Directors and Residence Advisors, and it is in easy walking distance to the campus.” Jewel in the Crown “If I were a high school senior and I had the opportunity to tour a campus like this, I wouldn’t visit another one! We have a beautiful campus on the water in a historic city filled with friendly people, where you can walk to everything, where your teachers know you on a personal and mentoring level and in an intimate small campus environment. We have an involved | August 2018 11

community that hosts multiple events on any given day, and we have every kind of water activity from boating and sailing to fishing and the beautiful beaches. Not to mention that Charleston and Savannah are a short drive for students to also explore. I truly believe that the Beaufort Campus is a jewel in the crown of USCB.” Fitness Dr. LeFavi is an expert in the fields of health, nutrition, sport science, sport medicine and psychology and has published over 725 articles (scientific and popular press) in his various fields of expertise. He is also co-owner of a CrossFit franchise in Effingham County and a previous owner of Gold’s Gym for 15 years. In 2013, he competed in the World CrossFit Games in the master’s division. More locally, Dr. LeFavi has studied the biomechanics of Beaufort weightlifting phenomenon C.J. Cummings, and was recently quoted by National Geographic on his findings. Off Campus Dr. LeFavi and his wife, Sue, have three children and have relocated to Beaufort in a home off Broad River Blvd. while they build in the Habersham community. He is ordained in the Anglican and Lutheran Churches, is the Pastor at Bethel Lutheran Church in Springfield, Georgia and is a columnist for the Savannah Morning

News. Dr. LeFavi and his family have dual citizenship with Italy, and he is the liaison for the development of a sister city agreement between Beaufort County/ Hilton Head Island and Verona, Italy. Favorite place in Beaufort? “The view at the end of the campus where Carteret meets Boundary,” says Dr.LeFavi, speaking of Bellamy Curve, “That view out into the water, to me, is stunningly beautiful. Just think of a

student being able to walk past that view from the dorms to the campus everyday!” Looking Forward Dr.Le Favi concludes, “We have a rich history, which we honor as we move forward. Things constantly change throughout history, and this campus has always adapted to situations and events it faced. We will continue to do so while we work together to develop a thriving campus, so everyone can see this jewel.”

MAKING A SOUND DIFFERENCE Jody Hayward – Executive Director of the Port Royal Sound Foundation


story by Cindy Reid photos by Susan DeLoach

he mission of the Port Royal Sound Foundation is as clear as the sparkling waters of the Port Royal Sound: “Together we can make a sound difference to advance the awareness of the Port Royal Sound and its contributions to the environmental, cultural and economic well-being of our area, the region and the Atlantic Ocean.” To further their mission and serve the community, the Foundation “renovated the former Lemon Island Marina to establish an engaging and exciting educational experience. The Maritime Center opened in November, 2014 and features exhibits, local art, history, hands-on learning spaces and other areas where you can learn about and celebrate the Port Royal Sound.” “The Port Royal Sound Area encompasses all the areas directly affected by the water flowing into Port Royal or Calibouge Sounds. This includes such rivers as the Beaufort, Broad and May, as well as all their tributaries. The Port Royal Sound Area is much larger than many people realize. It extends almost all the way to Interstate 95 and covers most of Beaufort County, as well as portions of Jasper and Hampton counties. Altogether, the Port Royal Sound Area comprises nearly 1,600 square miles of land, marsh and river.” Beaufort Lifestyle recently caught up with Jody Hayward, the Executive Director of the Port Royal Sound Foundation, to get to know her and learn more about the Maritime Center and the Port Royal Sound. Jody was raised in Augusta, Georgia and attended Georgia Tech, where she met her husband Marc. She says, “We lived in Atlanta, where Marc and I had gone to school, and we were married in 2000. A few years later we were pregnant and friends we had gone to school with told us about this great town- Beaufort, South Carolina. They essentially recruited us to move to Habersham, and Habersham was gorgeous, and we really saw Beaufort and the Habersham community as the right place to raise our family. Plus, I would be near my mom in Savannah! So, in 2004 we moved to Beaufort. “ Jody says, “our family expanded to two daughters, Ella and Sophie, and in 2007

16 August 2018 |

I got involved as a founder of Riverview Charter School. After the school opened in 2009, I continued to volunteer for several more years. Then I started looking for something new to do and was introduced to Mike Long, who was then Chairman of the Port Royal Sound Foundation. I fell in love with the whole idea of the Port Royal Sound Foundation! From my days at Riverview, I learned how much I enjoyed working for a nonprofit with a great purpose and providing something good for the community. So, I volunteered, held a few different positions and in 2014, I became the Executive Director of the Port

Royal Sound Foundation.” The Maritime Center “At the Maritime Center we have exhibits, educational programming and fun activities for every age group,” says Jody, “We explore history, art, terrestrial and marine life. We have a dock you can walk out on to enjoy the view of the Port Royal Sound and a 3000 gallon aquarium full of fish from the Sound. You can see blue crab, young alligators and terrapins and learn all about the sharks of the Port Royal Sound. Admission to the Maritime Center is FREE and everyone is welcome. We are here to provide an important

service to our community.” Jody says, “It is amazing how the Maritime Center has grown! It is really exciting. We now have a staff of ‘five and a half’ people, including Alicia Powell, Director of Development, Rachel Jones, Naturalist & Programs Coordinator, Chris Kehrer, Naturalist & Education Coordinator, Jennifer Jenkins, Grants Coordinator, and Sarah Walbert, Communications & Office Coordinator. We also have over 100 volunteers who help us with everything from cleaning fish tanks to giving tours in the Maritime Center – we couldn’t do it all without them!” She adds, “We serve thousands of children every year, which is our main focus, educating young people about their own community. We have kids who are born here who have never been on water or seen a dolphin until they come here on a school field trip. We are passionate

about serving the community by building appreciation and educating people about the Port Royal Sound.” Jody says they use a “Five Prong Approach” to how they promote the Port Royal Sound. She says, “The five prongs are Ecology, History, Culture, Arts and Recreation. The Port Royal Sound has influenced everything, from the earliest explorers, to the Gullah people, to the food we eat. The Sound really defines the past, present and future of our community. “ When asked what has been the most rewarding aspect of her position, Jody says, “The ability to make a difference. For example, Beaufort County’s plastic bag ban starts in October, so we are working on some new programs and events that will help bring awareness for keeping the Port Royal Sound healthy. The health of our community is dependent on the health of the Sound, so it is important that we

educate people on what they can do like using reusable bags, helping with litter pick-ups and being careful about what goes down our drains. We are also working on a plastics sculptural art contest that we hope to announce very soon!” Favorite Place Jody says, “My favorite place in Beaufort is on the water with my family. As long as the family is happy, I’m happy. We enjoy just riding around on the water. It is super relaxing. Being on the water- that’s why we are here.” Programs at the Maritime Center Enjoy diverse and fun opportunities to experience and connect with the Port Royal Sound. There is no admission fee for the Maritime Center. Tours are selfguided with volunteer docents available to answer questions and assist as needed. Some programs and activities do have fees associated with them. || August August 2018 2018 17 17

Paul Nurnberg

The Man Behind The Lens

story by Cindy Reid photos by Susan DeLoach


ou probably know Paul Nurnberg’s photographic work from the pages of this publication, Beaufort Lifestyle, or through any number of his artistic and commercial endeavors. Now it’s time to meet Paul, the man behind the lens, as he takes the helm as president of the Photography Club of Beaufort (PCoB) for a second time. The PCoB was formed in 2005 with the purpose of providing a cordial atmosphere where photographers of all levels, novice to expert, can come together to learn, develop and deliver images that draw out creative talents from behind the lens.

20 August 2018 |

With over 100 current members they are able to provide workshops, competitions, programs and constructive critique sessions. Although in Italy on vacation, Paul was gracious enough to take the time to answer a few of Beaufort Lifestyle’s question. Let’s start at the beginning- what got you interested in photography? I loved it in high school and I realized that I could go to school for it and try to make a living at it. Do you have formal training? I graduated with a BS in Photography from Rochester Institute of Technology (Rochester, NY) then I worked as a

full time photographer’s assistant for a photographer in Boston for three and a half years, then as an in-house photographer for two large corporations, so yes a lot of formal training. And I have taken many workshops and classes since school as well. How long have you owned your own photography business? I opened my first own photography business in North Carolina in 1987. In 1994, I moved my business to Savannah and then to Beaufort (first to Port Royal) about 10 years ago. What type photos do you enjoy taking the most?

I really love all types of commercial work, and so most of the work I do is commercial. My clients include advertising agencies and large corporations including, locally, Beaufort Memorial Hospital and JCB in Savannah. I also like fashion type things, dancers, food, architecture, industrial and aerial. All of it. If you have seen my ads in Beaufort Lifestyle magazine over the years you would see I have a hard time specializing. What is your history with the Photography Club of Beaufort? I was asked by one of the four founders to help start and be a part of it from the first meeting. I have served on the board as Vice President and Program Chair for a total of four years, then two years as President and two more years as past President. This year I was asked to, and accepted, the position of President again with my term starting July 1. As their incoming president, what are your goals for the club in the upcoming year? I want to make the club even more fun and try to encourage younger members to join and get involved. Other goals include having more frequent field trips, and more speakers and presenters, using our talented local (Beaufort, Savannah and Charleston) photographers. Also more workshops taught by local photographers. Tell us about the Dale Westcott Scholarship for aspiring young photographers. PCoB has an annual photography competition for high school students called the Dale Westcott Scholarship. The award is in memory of Dale Westcott, one of the original members of the photography club and a life-long educator. The Dale Westcott

Memorial Award is given annually by PCoB for the best nature photograph submitted by a local high school student. All area high schools may participate as well as students who are home-schooled. The judging takes place at the club’s April meeting and awards are presented at the May meeting. We are really trying to encourage all north of the Broad River high schools and home school students to participate. What is the best advice you can give a young photographer just starting out? That’s tough. I went to college and got a four year degree. Now, because of how

much technology has changed the business and education, I would recommend getting a 2 or 4 year degree in business and learn photography through college (or other) classes or by assisting other photographers or, joining a club such as ours. In the end, owning a photography business is indeed a business. So much can be learned on line now. I am always willing to talk to people who are considering a career in photography if they would like advice. Do you teach photography lessons? If so, explain a little about your classes. I have taught group classes for beginners through what was ArtWorks, and at TCL, as well as through my studio. Lately I have been giving many more one on one classes (or two on one). I can give lessons on how to use your camera better, composition, how to take better pictures, lighting, post processing using several different types of software, and how to properly store and catalog all of your digital images once you take them. I would like to do more group classes in the future. If anyone is interested they are welcome to contact me directly. What other professional clubs and/ or organizations are you a part of? I am a member of two national photo organizations: APA (American Photographic Artists) and a few years ago was the Secretary on its national board for two years. Also I am very involved with the SC Chapter of ASMP (American Society of Media Photographers). I have spent | August 2018 21

a total of ten years on the state board as Program Chair, Treasurer, Vice President and President. Outside of photography, I founded Greendrinks Beaufort and we just had our 10th anniversary. What is your most memorable photo shoot and why? This is a tough one. I was just telling my assistant while looking at some old printed pieces of my first big job after having opened my own business, that it involved a shoot of about 30 vehicles and 50 people and bucket trucks, and lots of co-ordination. At one point, I realized that every person there, including the clients and ad agency people were looking at me to tell them what to do. That was early on in my business so very memorable. I also spent several days in Maine photographing truck trailers from the ground and helicopter, so that was also fun and memorable. Also, live surgeries for hospitals, two cookbook projects, etc. I have done a lot so far in my career. Background Focus Where are you from originally? I was born in Aurora, IL but moved to Elmira, NY (a beautiful small city in the Finger Lakes area in upstate NY) when I was an infant, so I am from Elmira I guess. Tell us about your family. My wife Libby and I will celebrate our 36th wedding anniversary on Sept 11 of this year. How long have you been in Beaufort? We moved here in May of 1996, so a bit longer than 22 years. What are your hobbies...outside of photography? I love anything outdoors. Walking, hiking paddling, swimming, reading, eating and drinking. If you could live anywhere in the world, and continue to photograph, where would you live?

I love using drones for photography and video. I have actually been flying drones for about three years and currently have two. I earned my FAA Part 107 Drone Pilot’s License last year. Drones can give you a view and ability to photograph from angles impossible to do any other way. If you could have your dream job, would it be photography? My real dream job would probably be an astronaut. But really, I can’t see myself doing anything besides photography.

That is a tough one because there are so many places I have not been (and I am writing this from Florence, Italy.) Digital & Drone How has the digital age changed your business? Completely. There’s is a lot more competition now as the barrier to entry into the business is so low. Digital cameras and computers are so cheap now. People who have no training at all can make images that are technically very good. However, one thing that separates a professional photographer from someone who just owns a camera is that as an experienced photographer, I pre-plan many aspects of a commercial photography shoot, and am able to solve problems for my clients during a shoot. A professional photographer knows how to deal with all kinds of situations. Everything from corporate board rooms to operating rooms, from large industrial plants to photographing from various types of aircraft. How do you feel about the new drone photography?

t is the goal of the Beaufort County School District to create a safe learning environment for every child. The Beaufort County School District takes bullying very seriously. The policy on bullying states that any and all incidences of bullying should be reported immediately. Once an incident is reported, school administration will contact all parties associated with the bullying incident to make sure that all parties are aware of the policy against bullying and the consequences for continuing to bully. Incidents will be documented and the parents in all cases will be contacted. The consequences can be as simple as a warning and as serious as a recommendation for expulsion. "If you SEE something, SAY something!" is their anti-bullying

slogan. The BCSD makes it easy for anyone to report an incident of bullying, harassment or intimidation. One can call the BCSD bullying hotline at 843322-2435 or choose to report via email at You may choose to include your name or remain completely anonymous. What exactly is bullying? Wikipedia defines bullying as "the use of force, threat, or coercion to abuse, intimidate or aggressively dominate others. The behavior is often repeated and habitual. One essential prerequisite is the perception, by the bully or by others, of an imbalance of social or physical power, which distinguishes bullying from conflict. Behaviors used to assert such domination can include verbal harassment or threat, physical assault or coercion, and such

acts may be directed repeatedly towards particular targets. Rationalizations of such behavior sometimes include differences of social class, race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, appearance, behavior, body language, personality, reputation, lineage, strength, size or ability." There are 4 main types of bullying. Verbal bullying is saying or writing mean things. This includes teasing, taunting, and name calling. Social bullying involves hurting someone's reputation or relationships. Examples include leaving someone out on purpose, spreading rumors about someone, and telling other children not to be friends with someone. Physical bullying is hurting a person's body or their possessions. Hitting, kicking and breaking someone's things are all examples of physical bullying. The newest form

of bullying is cyberbullying. It includes sending, posting, or sharing negative, harmful, false or mean content about someone. The American Academy of Pediatrics calls cyberbullying the most common online risk for all teens. It is deliberately using digital media such as cell phones, computers and tablets to communicate false, emarrassing or hostile information about or to another person. The most common places where cyberbullying occurs is social media, text messaging and email. It began in the early to mid 90's when AOL was launched and web surfing first became popular. Today, you will be hard pressed to find a student that doesn't have access to a cell phone, computer or tablet. According to cyberbullying statistics from the i-SAFE Foundation, over half of adolescents and teens have been bullied online, and about the same number admitted to having engaged in cyberbullying.

There are many types of cyberbullying. Here are a few examples: • Gossip: Posting or sending cruel gossip to damage a person's reputation and relationships with friends and family. • Exclusion: Deliberately excluding someone from an online group. • Impersonation: Breaking into someone's email or other online account and sending

messages that will cause embarrassment or damage to the person's reputation and affect his or her relationship with others. • Harassment: Repeatedly posting or sending offensive, rude, and insulting messages. • Cyberstalking: Posting or sending unwanted or intimidating messages that may also include threats. • Flaming: Online fights where offensive messages are posted on websites, forums, or blogs. • Outing and Trickery: Tricking someone into revealing secrets or embarrassing information which is then shared online. • Cyberthreats: Remarks on the internet threatening or implying violent behavior or displaying suicidal tendencies. Victims can have very negative effects from bullying such as depression, withdrawal, addiction, self harm and even suicide. So how do you know if your child is being bullied? Parents are often unaware that their child is a victim of a bully, but there are warning signs that you can be aware of. Here are 5 of them... 1. Unexplained Injuries: Look for bruises, cuts or scratches that cannot be a result of normal play or regular activities. Victims are often shoved, tripped or

pushed to the ground. 2. Changes in Appetite: If your child suddenly loses his or her appetite, or comes home hungry as if they haven't had any food all day even though you packed a lunch, he or she could be a victim of bullying. There may be another child at school that is stealing their lunch or lunch money. Or maybe your child hides during lunch in order to avoid a confrontation with a bully. 3. Frequent Sick Days: Some victims try to avoid going to school at all. If your normally healthy child suddenly often complains of being sick, typically right before school, there is a chance that someone at school is bullying them. 4. Missing Personal Items: Bullying is not just physical or verbal abuse. Stealing and intimidation are other forms of bullying. If your child is normally responsible but is suddenly losing or coming home with destroyed belongings, they may be suffering from intimidation. 5. Suffering Grades: Something isn't quite right when a decent student suddenly, and without explanation, loses interest in doing well at school. Victims of bullying oftentimes withdraw fom activities that they once found pleasurable. | August 2018 31

I can’t wait to be an Eagle!"

Mrs. Coyle, Beaufort Academy alum (BA '78), is particularly excited to return to BA as a full-time teacher after part-time teaching and tutoring last year. She loves the excitement and electricity of the BA learning atmosphere and is so thankful to be back home. Mrs. Coyle received her bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and Business from the University of California Long Beach. After college, she went on to design and install computer systems for large corporations and the government. Her favorite aspects of these jobs were teaching how to create and use these systems. From there, she embarked to various teaching environments. Mrs. Coyle has taught an assortment of subjects, mostly science and math, along with English, in the US and the Philippines. Teaching and learning is her passion. In addition to the traditional school subjects, she has also taught ballet, aerobics, gymnastics, computer programming, and robotics. Last summer, Mrs. Coyle moved back to Beaufort with her husband, Jeff, who is partially retired and owns his own consulting business. They have three children. Sarah is a graduate student at Christopher Newport University, Josh is a sophomore at the University of South Carolina, and Matthew is a sophomore at BA. And there is Heyward – the high spirited, much-loved family dog.

Mr. Lentz was born and raised in Beaufort, and graduated from Beaufort High School in 2014. He graduated from The Citadel in May 2018 with a B.S. in Physics, and as recent college graduate Mr. Lentz will be joining the Beaufort Academy team as a high school math teacher. Mr. Lentz enjoys hiking and reading in his spare time. In 2014, Mr. Lentz was presented the Sons of the American Revolution Gov. Paul Hamilton Eagle Scout of the Year Award, and was also recognized by the Gov. Paul Hamilton Chapter for having achieved the Eagle Scout designation during his Honor Court, which is the highest rank that the Boy Scouts offers. Mr Lentz says, "I am looking forward to starting my teaching career at BA and I plan on learning as much as I teach."

emoirist, novelist, and poet laureate of Mississippi, Beth Ann Fennelly, will launch the Pat Conroy Literary Center’s 2018 Visiting Writers Series with her appearance on Thursday, August 9, 6:00–7:30 p.m., at the Hilton Head Island Branch Library (11 Beach City Road). Free and open to the public, this event will feature Fennelly’s remarks on—and a reading from—her most recent book, Heating & Cooling: 52 Micro-Memoirs. “With the concision of poetry, the scope of fiction, and the potency of a well-told memoir, Heating & Cooling imparts tremendous joy, heartache and surprise in about 100 pages,” praised the Charleston Post & Courier. “Beth Ann Fennelly’s genre-defying collection is so engaging and readable that you won’t even notice how much you’re learning about confronting the hardest challenge we all share: being human. . . . Everyone should read this book,” assured The Atlanta JournalConstitution. Ranging in length from 10 words to six pages, the micro-memoirs in Heating & Cooling offer bright glimpses into a richly lived life, combining the compression of poetry with the truth-telling of nonfiction into one heartfelt, celebratory book. From childhood recollections to quirky cultural observations, these remembrances build on one another to arrive at a portrait of Fennelly as a wife, mother, writer and deeply original observer of life’s challenges and joys. Some pieces are wistful, some wry, and many reveal the humor buried in our everyday interactions. Fennelly teaches in the MFA Program at the University of Mississippi. She has published three poetry collections:

The Conroy Center and the Anchorage 1770 Inn to Host a Southern Living Inspired Event: Cook the Book

With James Beard Award-winning Chef and Cookbook Author Cynthia Graubart

BEAUFORT, SC - Southern Living, the Pat Conroy Literary Center, and the Anchorage 1770 Inn are excited to announce the first Cook The Book: Sharing Recipes, Wine & Words, a special event to be held Saturday, May 19 , from 4:00–9:00 p.m. at the Anchorage 1770 (1103 Bay St., Beaufort, SC). The inaugural Cook the Book will be presented by renowned southern chef Cynthia Graubart, and will focus on recipes from her recent cookbook Sunday Suppers (2017). The event has three components: Cynthia will give a cooking demonstration of three recipes from Sunday Suppers assisted by Anchorage chef Byron Landis, followed by a book and apron signing with wine and appetizers on the veranda, and culminating with a four-course dinner complete with hand-selected wine pairings in the dining room. This new venture was inspired by Pat Conroy’s passion for cooking and his perennial search for a new recipe. Pat opens his 2004 cookbook with the words, “The subject of food is nearly a sacred one to me.” His lifelong passion for cooking was first ignited in 1969 and only became more intense as he grew older. Many of his readers are familiar with another quote from his cookbook, “a recipe is a story that ends with a good meal.” Cynthia Graubart is an ideal chef to launch the new Cook the Book series, which celebrates foodways, writing, and fellowship. When Pat first began cooking in earnest, he turned to Cynthia’s husband Cliff for guidance. It was 1969 and Pat’s first wife had appointed him family chef. He ventured to the Old New York Bookshop in Atlanta, asking for Graubart’s help. According to Pat’s recollections, Cliff, fearing the Conroy clan demise by starvation, handed Pat an edition of Auguste Escoffier’s cookbook. And so Pat’s culinary adventures photo by Dianne Bond, Bella Via Photography 36 Augustand 2018 | he began, became the epicurean ‘magician’, the soup ‘sorcerer’, turning “the art of

Open House, Tender Hooks, and Unmentionables. In addition to Heating & Cooling, Fennelly is also the author of the book of essays, Great with Child: Letters to a Young Mother, and the historical novel The Tilted World (co-authored with her husband Tom Franklin). A book signing will follow Fennelly’s August 9 evening appearance at the Hilton Head Branch Library. On August 10, Fennelly will also join Conroy Center executive director, Jonathan Haupt, and USC Beaufort writer in residence, Ellen Malphrus, for professional development workshop for the language arts teachers of the Beaufort County School District. The Conroy Center’s Visiting Writers Series is sponsored in part by a grant from South Carolina Humanities, a not-forprofit organization; inspiring, engaging and enriching South Carolinians with programs on literature, history, culture and heritage.
