At one time, Elizabeth Connor was a professor at the Citadel (Education and Leadership), and before that a librarian at MUSC and elsewhere. I remember going to a Lively Lunch she ran at the Charleston Conference and won a woven basket (that she brought back from when she worked at Ross University, Dominica)… Now, since 2022 she’s an emerita and an author. Per her LinkedIn: When this book project first started in 2018, I gave Richard Porcher a bottle of Charleston Sercial (Madeira) to celebrate. Just picked up another bottle today because the book goes to press in early 2024. Here’s more info about the book: The Santee Canal: South Carolina’s First Commercial Highway by Elizabeth Connor, Richard Dwight Porcher, Jr., and William Robert Judd. The Santee Canal provided the first inland navigation route from the Upcountry of the South Carolina Piedmont to the port of Charleston and the Atlantic Ocean. This is an authoritative and richly illustrated history of one of America’s first canals. (University of South Carolina Press, 2024.) 

Scheduled for jury selection to start January 8, the trial of Hadi Matar, Salman Rushdi’s alleged attacker, has been postponed to accommodate the expected April 16 publication of Knife: Meditations after an attempted murder (Penguin Random House). Matar was charged with the August 12, 2022 stabbing attack on Rushdie while he was on stage to give a lecture at the Chatauqua Institute.
