Once again we will gather to celebrate Pat Conroy’s legacy with our FIFTH ANNUAL PAT CONROY FESTIVAL. Sadly, this pandemic has made large gatherings in Beaufort impossible at a time when community seems most important. But by going virtual many others will be able to participate in our uplifting weekend of discussion and workshops and exhibits and virtual tours. So please JOIN US and make your words count as we host a series of events that celebrates the written word and pursue our goal of making every voice matter!

The fifth annual Pat Conroy Literary Festival will be held as a series live-streamed author presentations and panel discussions, online writing workshops, exhibits, and virtual tours on November 5-8, 2020.

The Pat Conroy Literary Festival is made possible by the generous support of the Estate of Robert S. Handler and is presented in partnership with South Carolina Educational Television (SCETV), the Crescendo arts festival of Hilton Head Island, the Beaufort chapter of the South Carolina Writers Association, the Friends of South Carolina Libraries, the National Association of Women Artists, and the Coastal Discovery Museum of Hilton Head Island.
