Award-winning SC author Joyce Hansen featured at Fall Literary Festival

When Joyce Hansen, an award-winning young adult author, was learning to read, she and her mother picked up "Alice and Wonderland" and read it over and over again. Those early reading experiences inspired her passion for storytelling, a joy that turned into a career. Hansen is among a trio of authors coming to campus for this month's Fall Literary Festival.

Sometimes the group doesn’t even know what they are planning to play, they just go with the flow and improvise. On Oct. 14, this unique group will be playing at the Freeman Sundays @ 3 concert series at the School of Music Recital Hall.
