Micah Blaise, program director of Girls Rock Charleston, will be speaking at the Library Society this Friday at 8 a.m. “Action” appears to be an appropriate topic for August’s speaker; Girls Rock Charleston! is a nonprofit youth education organization that empowers girls and trans youth through music education. Rock on.
