McCullers wrote much of her celebrated novel The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter while living on East Boulevard in Charlotte in the late 1930s. The novel’s compelling coming-of-age story deals directly and sensitively with issues of region, race, religion, class, gender, sexual orientation, gender-identity, and disability that are ever more topical.
