MISSION

The Pat Conroy Literary Center will cultivate a passionate and inclusive reading and writing community in honor of the beloved Beaufort author Pat Conroy, who dedicated his life to spreading his love for literature and education to future generations.

Pat Conroy cast a wide net as he dedicated his life to spreading his love for reading, writing and storytelling.

The Pat Conroy Literary Center in his hometown of Beaufort, SC is a new community building gathering place, part classroom, part museum, but a nonprofit organization that is fully committed to creating an inclusive reading and writing community that will honor Pat Conroy’s memory and extending his love of teaching, language and literature to future generations. The house’s small museum is open on weekends now, but a series of lectures, special events and classes are being planned to begin in 2017.

We need your help. You financial support is essential to secure the Center’s future and to allow its influence to grow. Please donate, volunteer and see what a difference you can make.
