Julie R. Smith, humor columnist for The Press and Standard, has been accepted into the South Carolina Artisans’ Guild. Her book of collected columns, “Southern-Fried and Sanctified,” is available in the “new artists” area of the Artisans’ Center at 318 Wichman Street.
“Southern-Fried and Sanctified” takes a wry look at Southern life, with observations on work, marriage, Chardonnay, divorce, dieting and dogs that won’t stay on the porch.
“I’m thrilled the book was selected. It’s an honor,” Smith —who’s won 28 State Press Association awards in North and South Carolina — said Wednesday. Look for regular blog updates about “Southern-Fried and Sanctified” at www.widdleswife.com.
The Artisans’ Center offers a wide collection of curated items created by South Carolinians, including original art, sculpture, textiles, wood carvings and photography.
