The Charleston Literary Festival was founded in 2017 by the Charleston Library Society in the US and the Charleston Trust in the UK. The festival is now an independent nonprofit organization with events each November in Charleston, South Carolina. VIE was proud to sponsor the Opening Night Gala in 2018 and again for the 2022 festival, which took place November 4–13. It kicked off with an intimate female authors’ brunch at a private courtyard home featuring former VIE cover star Tina Brown and fellow author Betsy Prioleau, with a fashion presentation by Ala von Auersperg. The festival continued with exceptional speakers throughout the week at historic venues across the city.
