"Allen recounts how these achievements led Bragg back to her home state and specifically to Charleston in 1939, where she lived in relative isolation from the museum and art worlds she had so influenced for nearly forty years but remained influential in the city's intellectual life. Summing up a noteworthy career, Allen describes Bragg's efforts to mentor two generations of Charleston's literati and assesses her vitalization of the city's culture for close to seventy-five years."--BOOK JACKET.
