Special Reception featuring "Claws" by Archibald Rutledge

 Claws, a fast-paced adventure tale of a young boy, Paul, lost in the foreboding terrain of Spencer’s Swamp, was written by South Carolina’s first poet laureate, Archibald Rutledge, for publication in an early twentieth-century boy’s magazine and was first collected in the privately printed Eddy Press edition of Old Plantation Days (c. 1913). It’s publication was limited to about 200 copies and the Eddy Press edition is rare and highly prized by Rutledge collectors.
