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, who helped so many writers, died on March 4, 2016. He was not able to continue his generous attempts to repay the debt he felt he owed to his readers and all those who helped him along his way. We hope you will join us in continuing his legacy of generosity.

Your financial help is essential if we are to establish The Pat Conroy Literary Center in a historic building in his hometown of Beaufort, South Carolina. Your support will make it possible to create a welcoming gathering place for events, workshops, and classes to nurture and inspire writers and readers, young and old. We can’t imagine a better tribute.

Your gift will allow us to fund a nonprofit organization dedicated to encouraging a reading and writing community for generations to come.
