Former South Carolina Lieutenant Governor Nick Theodore will be signing copies of his new memoir at Fiction Addiction on August 22nd.
Lieutenant Governor Theodore’s new memoir, Trials and Triumphs: South Carolina’s Evolution, 1962-2014, will be available for sale, along with collaborator and former WYFF-4 news anchor Dave Partridge, at Fiction Addiction on Friday, August 22nd, from 2:00-4:00pm. Nick will also give a few remarks about the book at 3:00pm. This event is free and open to the public, and refreshments will be served.
This book contains stories about some of South Carolina’s most exciting decades: its growing role in the national and international economy, its welcoming of immigrants and integration, its advances in education, health care and research, its exciting collaborations, notable leaders, memorable personalities and an education lottery that works. All these and other stories told by one of South Carolina’s longtime civic and political leaders.

He was a State representative from 1963 to 1966 and 1970 to 1978, and a South Carolina state senator from 1967 to 1968 and 1981 to 1986.
