If you're a Pat Conroy fan, you'll know that he was not only an amazing author, but he was also an intentional and brilliant mentor. In the course of his career, he groomed and honed many other authors in their shared craft, and many of those writers will gather at the store on Friday, December 14 at 6:30 to discuss his influence on their lives and on the greater life of literature.
It's not often we get so much talent in one room at one time. Here’s a list of the people who’ll be here:
Each of these people knew Conroy and benefited from his generosity. They either contributed to or edited the book Our Prince of Scribes: Writers Remember Pat Conroy. Each author will sign works of his/her own, and there will also be a panel discussion. It will be a group of smart people talking about a smart man and his mark on the world. Make a point to be there; you'll be glad you did.
