The Cigar Factory: A Novel of Charleston with Author Michele Moore

Tuesday, May 1, 2018

Open to Public - Library Sponsored

Author Michele Moore tells the story of two entwined families, both devoutly Catholic—the white McGonegals and the African American Ravenels—in the storied port city of Charleston, South Carolina, during the world wars. Moore’s novel follows the parallel lives of family matriarchs working on segregated floors of the massive Charleston cigar factory, where white and black workers remain divided and misinformed about the duties and treatment each group receives.
