Actor Brenda Bynum gives life to the literary artistry of Clayton County native Lillian E. Smith with her performance, "Jordan Is So Chilly: An Encounter with Lillian Smith," based on the writings of the author of "Strange Fruit" and "Killers of the Dream." Bynum has given dramatic readings from the letters of Flannery O’Connor at Emory University, and she portrayed Violet Weston in the Atlanta premiere of the Tony Award-winning play "August: Osage County" at the Alliance Theatre. Clayton County is home to the Lillan E. Smith Center for Creative Arts, a place on Old Screamer Mountain where artists and scholars find the solitude in which to develop and pursue their visions.
