Praise for “OUR PRINCE OF SCRIBES”
“A testament to his mentorship and passion for educating others, the book includes essays from more than sixty writers, including Rick Bragg, Nikky Finney, Mary Alice Monroe, Ron Rash, and Sallie Ann Robinson, one of Conroy’s former students on Daufuskie Island. It’s a moving tribute to the legacy of one of the South’s brightest lights.”–Garden & Gun’s Talk of the South
