The South Carolina State Library’s Center for the Book, in conjunction with USC Press and Hub City Press, will open The Speaker @ the Center program today with “Seeking: Poetry and Prose Inspired by the Art of Jonathan Green.” The book, edited by Kwame Dawes and Marjory Wentworth, was published this month by USC Press. In it, writers respond to the Gullah artist’s vivid portrayals through poetry, prose and memoir. The one-hour program begins at noon. The library is at 1500 Senate St. Free; http://statelibrary.sc.gov/
