Pat Conroy Literary Center, Beaufort, SC

“Wholeness. It all comes back. It’s all a circle.”–The Prince of Tides

Explore the faith and spirituality of best-selling author Pat Conroy (1945–2016) as reflected in his turbulent life and beloved books—from his Roman Catholic upbringing to The Citadel’s honor code to themes of spirituality in his beloved books to his life of service as a mentor to his fellow writers. Presented by Jonathan Haupt, executive director of the nonprofit Pat Conroy Literary Center, this program will include excerpts from writings by and about Conroy as well as published and unpublished photographs.

Hosted by the Athens Chautauqua Society, this free online event is limited to 50 participants. Please register in advance at
