Copiah-Lincoln Community College opened their Natchez Campus in Fall of 1972. Carolyn Vance Smith remembers those early days and her role in starting the Natchez Literary and Cinema Celebration.
Each year, the Natchez Literary and Cinema Celebration focuses on Mississippi’s contributions to the world of Literature. Smith discusses how they select the theme for each conference. Since 1989, the NLCC has worked to present memorable programs for conference attendees. Smith recalls two of her favorite events from past years.
The NLCC always includes events and programs for students from the junior high level through college. Smith explains why it is important to make Literature and Writing more accessible to young people.
