In :lt:em :gt:State of the Heart :lt:/em :gt:, Aï:da Rogers has crafted an artful love letter to our state, with contributions from a host of nationally and regionally recognised writers who have written short essays on the South Carolina places that they cherish. This anthology provides a multifaceted historical and personal view of the Palmetto State. :lt:br :gt: :lt:br :gt:Thematically organised, this collection offers a geographic and emotional scope that is as diverse as its contributors. Sportswriters describe beloved arenas: historians reflect on church ruins and forts. A playwright recalls the magic of her first theatre experience: a food writer revels in a coastal joint that serves fresh oysters. Backyards, front porches, a small library at a children's home, the Savannah River Site, and places that are gone except in the memories of the writers who loved them—:these are just a few of the locales covered, all showing how South Carolina has changed and inspired people in a variety of ways. :lt:br :gt: :lt:br :gt: :lt:em :gt:State of the Heart :lt:/em :gt:evokes a sense of history and timelessness by bringing together heartfelt responses to South Carolina rooted in memory, drawing on reflection, inspiration, and love. The anthology reveals a state that is more than a playground for tourists: it is a state of human hiding places that echo in the hearts of its literary citizens. Though presented as a book about place, the collection is ultimately about our shared connections to one another, to a complex common past, and to ongoing efforts to frame and build a future of promise and possibility.
