Artist Jonathan Green will give an illustrated talk on Gullah culture Tuesday at The Citadel.

Green, whose work has appeared in national and international galleries, will present "A Vision of Low-Country Culture" on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. in Bond Hall 165 on The Citadel campus. Green will have prints of his work for sale. The talk will include a book signing and a reception honoring Green.

Green's talk is the latest in the Friends of Daniel Library Spring 2011 Lecture series. It continues on Feb. 22, when author and Citadel alumni Eldon Brown discusses his new book, "Controlled Crash."

The series continues on March 8, when local author and Post and Courier columnist Brian Hicks will discuss his new book, "Toward the Setting Sun." On April 12, Citadel alumni and Nashville entertainment manager Tandy Ric will tell stories about such famous proteges as Dolly Parton and Hank Williams. On April 26, Citadel professor Scott Buchanan will offer "The Story of Marvin Griffin, Georgia Governor."

All the events are free and, in most cases, book signings follow the lecture.

In addition, on March 15 the Friends will hold a gala reception featuring Pat Conroy and John Warley, both Class of '67 Citadel alumni. Conroy will discuss his new book, "My Reading Life," and Warley will talk about his new release, "Bethesda's Child." The gala begins at 5 p.m. and tickets are available for $50.
