Speaker Series: Pre-Publication Book Launch with Marie Benedict

January 6, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

CLS and Buxton Books host Marie Benedict for the launch of her new book Lady Clementine. The best-selling author returns to the Library Society to celebrate the release of her newest novel, Lady Clementine, that focuses on one of the people who had the most influence during World War I and World War II: Clementine Churchill. Tickets are $30 and include a copy of Benedict’s Lady Clementine with a signed bookplate. To purchase tickets, call 843-723-9912 or click here.

Please join us following the event for an author’s reception with Marie Benedict hosted by ELYSIAN Magazine at the historic King Charles Inn from 7-9pm. Wine, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres will be served.


In 1909, Clementine steps off a train with her new husband, Winston. An angry woman emerges from the crowd to attack, shoving him in the direction of an oncoming train. Just before he stumbles, Clementine grabs him by his suit jacket. This will not be the last time Clementine Churchill will save her husband.

“Lady Clementine” is the ferocious story of the ambitious woman beside Winston Churchill, the story of a partner who did not flinch through the sweeping darkness of war, and who would not surrender either to expectations or to enemies.

Marie Benedict is the author of The Other Einstein, Carnegie’s Maid, The Only Woman in the Room, and Lady Clementine. She is a lawyer with more than ten years’ experience as a litigator at two of the country’s premier law firms and for Fortune 500 companies. Visit her online at authormariebenedict.com.
