“Butterflies Wake” cover designed by Jan Marvin


The highly anticipated novel, “Butterflies Wake” by Arlene Lagos is coming back to Charleston where it all first began. The short-film-turned-novel is about an underground female mafia who rights the wrongs of an unjust society.

The story was inspired by friends of Lagos who appear not only in the short film, but also on the front cover of the book. The cover was photographed by Daniel Island native Jan Marvin at the Francis Marion Hotel downtown. Marvin also designed the cover of the book.

All 10 women live in the Charleston, North Charleston, West Ashley, James Island, Daniel Island and Mount Pleasant areas and were in the making of the short film that debuted in 2011 at Film Meets Fashion.

Lagos will be back in Charleston for the release party and book signing which will be held on Friday, Aug. 15 at Triangle Char Bar on 828 Savannah Highway in West Ashley from 7-10 p.m.

Lagos has written poetry, stage plays, screenplays and short stories for over 20 years. In addition to writing “Butterflies Wake,” she's also written the “Beyond Earth” series, as well as 12 short stories that are published in the “Giant Tales” anthology.
