This month on “Crossroads of Rockland History,” Clare Sheridan interviewed Dr. Nick Norwood, director of the Carson McCullers Center at Columbus State University in Columbus GA about the life and work of Carson McCullers. Carson McCullers moved to Nyack, NY with her mother and sister in 1944 and lived there until her death in 1967. In the Nyack house she completed The Member of the Wedding (1946), The Ballad of the Sad Café (1951), Clock without Hands (1961), and other plays, short stories, poetry, and autobiographical works. 2017 marks 100 years since McCullers’ birth and 50 years since her death.
