Charlotte, NC––Celebrated author Carson McCullers (The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter, The Member of the Wedding, and Reflections in a Golden Eye) would turn 100 on February 19, 2017. Though McCullers died in 1967 at age 50, her breakout novel The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter continues to make essential reading lists, a perennial favorite for its courageous and sensitive exploration of society’s most enduring social challenges––discrimination based on class, disability, gender, political ideology, race, religion,  and sexual orientation––issues that, eighty years later, continue to haunt and divide our city, state, and nation.
