The Charleston JCC Jewish Bookfest, The Citadel Fine Arts Program and the Friends of Daniel Library welcome Lisa Barr, author of “Fugitive Colors,” for a talk and book signing 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at The Citadel’s Bond Hall. The event is free.

Barr’s novel is about stolen art, love, lust, deception and revenge. Adolf Hitler tries to destroy the avant-garde in the 1930s, but one young painter refuses to let that happen.

“Fugitive Colors” won the IPPY Award for Best Literary Fiction in 2014. Following her presentation, books will be available for purchase and signing during a dessert reception at the Museum Reading Room in Daniel Library. EDITOR’S NOTE: This talk has been cancelled.

The Crazyhorse Reading Series presents poet Beth Bachmann who will read some of her work at 7 p.m. Thursday in the Alumni Memorial Hall at the College of Charleston. The event is free.

Bachmann, winner of the AWP Donald Hall Prize for Poetry and the Kate Tufts Discovery Award, is a Philadelphia native and writing professor at Vanderbilt University. Currently, she is at work on a book of poems about peace, called “Cease.”

Crazyhorse is a 55-year-old literary journal whose editorial staff is based at the College of Charleston.

L.P. Hoffman, author of “The Canaan Creed,” “Shadow of the Piper” and “The Third Peril,” will be at the Barnes & Noble at Mount Pleasant Towne Centre to read excerpts from her books and sign copies 6-8 p.m. March 6.

Hoffman writes mystery-suspense novels that deal with culturally relevant, sometimes controversial, issues.
