Lillian Smith:  famous in the 1940s as the best-selling author of Strange Fruit (1944) and Killers of the Dream (1949), she was a fierce if ladylike opponent of segregation in the South.

 

Carson McCullers:  the prodigy of American letters, known for her novels The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter and The Member of the Wedding, she relished the role of outsider and provocateur.

 

Paula Snelling:  Lillian's life partner.  Behind every great man there is a great woman, the saying goes.  Behind Lillian Smith there was Paula.

................

 

On Nov. 17, 1953 Smith and Snelling were at their home in the Georgia mountains, while Smith recovered from a mastectomy.  A phone call announced the imminent, unexpected arrival of Carson McCullers for a visit.  This day would change their lives.

Lillian, Paula. Carson.
