The Pat Conroy Literary Center is open to the public from Thursday through Sundays from noon to 4:00 p.m., and at other times by appointment.
Welcome! The first series of literary events and programs has now begun – see “Events” tab. And the PORCH TALK blog is open, so pull up a chair and join in the conversation. We hope you’ll stop by often. We want to hear from you.
Mark your calendar for next October 20-22/17 when we will gather once again in Beaufort for the second annual Pat Conroy Literary Festival. Pat Conroy loved stories and revered teachers so this year we will celebrate the Transformative Power of Education as we honor both storytellers and teachers in our programs. So come and join us.
Your support now and in the future means everything.
When: June 28 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Where: Lexington County Library, Irmo Branch
