Celebrating Lillian Smith
The Lillian E. Smith Symposium on Arts and Social Change, titled Celebrating Lillian Smith for 2019, will celebrate the life and works of Lillian Smith through presentations and conversation with special guest speakers and artists.
Throughout her career as a writer and humanitarian, Lillian Smith examined how the arts engage people around issues of social injustice, segregation, and isolation. The family home of Lillian Smith, in Clayton, Georgia, is now an educational center operated by Piedmont College as the Lillian E. Smith Center.
The Lillian E. Smith Symposium on Arts and Social Change will take place at the Piedmont College Athens campus in the Commons Building. The cost of registration is $25, and the link for the symposium registration and schedule is available below.
