The Beaufort-based Luxe Lowcountry Travel is hosting its inaugural Lowcountry Literary and Leisure Getaway on March 9-12, as an opportunity for dozens of literary pilgrims to experience Pat Conroy’s beloved lowcountry through an inviting and immersive itinerary of special events and tours. Three of those special events will also be open to the public, presented as fundraisers for the nonprofit Pat Conroy Literary Center.

Luxe Lowcountry Travel owner and virtual book club host Susie L. McMahon envisioned the getaway weekend and its corresponding public events as a love letter to the literary lowcountry:

The Lowcountry Literary and Leisure Getaway is a passion project for me combining my love of reading and slow travel. Highlighting the writing of Pat Conroy along with authors featured as part of the Susie L. McMahon Virtual Book Club is the focus. And having the gem of Beaufort’s literary life, the Pat Conroy Literary Center, as the beneficiary of this inaugural venture is at the forefront of this homage and a way of giving back to the Center for all it does in support of readers and writers from near and far alike.
