 In the mid-twentieth century, Charlotte was home to at least three writers whose reflections on the city and its people won them local, regional, and even national recognition.

LeGette Blythe was a sage from North Mecklenburg who saw history in every part of the modern city. Harry Golden was the “Carolina Israelite,” who wrote a little bit about a lot of things, but stopped to think more deeply when he wrote about Charlotte. Dorothy Knox earned her stripes as a reporter and then, as a columnist for the Charlotte News, mixed personal and local news in a way that endeared her to her readers.

Come to hear how Charlotte has inspired these writers and decide whether the city they described is the one we know today.
