Cowpens Library is hosting Voices and Votes: Democracy in America, a traveling multimedia exhibit that asks who has the right to vote, what our responsibilities are as citizens, and how our voices are heard. Following the history of voting in America, Voices and Votes asks its visitors to consider how we can continue to form a more perfect union.
Voices and Votes: Democracy in America is part of Museum on Main Street, a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and SC Humanities.
In 1781, Caty Greene—wife of Continental Army General Nathanael Greene—works toward the front lines of the American War for Independence. As she moves closer to her husband’s camp, Caty is struck by the devastation and desolation that the War has left behind.

The old adage “write what you know” holds especially true for bestselling author and retired Special Forces Lieutenant Colonel Brad Taylor, who has penned sixteen military thrillers about Pike Logan, a Taskforce operator who works outside the law to stop some of the greatest threats to global safety.
Taylor will be in Spartanburg to celebrate his 17th novel, The Devil’s Ransom. No sign up is required to attending, but arrive early to get a good seat and your own free copy of The Devil’s Ransom at the door!
