In this free, public presentation, explore Conroy’s spiritual and humanistic faith as reflected in his turbulent life and bestselling books—from his Roman Catholic upbringing to The Citadel’s honor code to themes of spirituality in his writings to his life of service as a mentor to his fellow writers to his connections to his “second church,” First Presbyterian Church of Beaufort.
Join us online on Zoom for a guided tour of the nonprofit Pat Conroy Literary Center in Beaufort, S.C., led by executive director Jonathan Haupt. This virtual tour will is presented in partnership with the Southeastern Writers Association and will offer insights and inspirations from the arc of Pat Conroy's storied life as an author and as a lifelong mentor to his fellow writers.
This workshop will create safe space and participants will be guided into the spaciousness of their imagination, encouraging writing from the soul. Through the use of questions, stories, images, word play & drawings/doodles we will write lists, topics, poems of all styles, titles, essays – or at least begin them.
