LANDSCAPES OF THE HEART: THE ELIZABETH SPENCER STORY

SUNDAY, JAN. 11, CHAPEL HILL

CHAPEL HILL PUBLIC LIBRARY—One of the true living legends of North Carolina fiction writing, Chapel Hill's Elizabeth Spencer is invaluable not only for her extraordinary literary career—1956's The Voice at the Back Door delved into Southern racial tensions ahead of To Kill a Mockingbird; The Light in the Piazza was adapted into an award-winning Broadway musical—but also for her groundbreaking portrayals of the American South from a female perspective. Rebecca Cerese's documentary Landscapes of the Heart explores Spencer's life and work through the lens of her Southern lineage; this screening in Meeting Room B at the library also features a Q&A with producer Sharon Swanson. 2 p.m., free, 100 Library Dr., 919-968-2777,
