Third Annual Pat Conroy Literary Festival

Contact: Jonathan Haupt, 843-379-7025

Dates Set for November 2–4, 2018 | Beaufort, South Carolina

BEAUFORT, SC—The third annual Pat Conroy Literary Festival will be held in Conroy’s beloved Beaufort, South Carolina, this November 2–4. This year’s festival theme will address a trio of foundations central to Conroy’s writing life, and indeed to all of southern literature and culture: Faith, Family & Friendship. In his timeless fiction and memoirs, Conroy’s evolving sense of self was interwoven in his questioning of religion, his conflicted familial entanglements, and his stalwart belief in the fellowship of his tribe of friends. In multifaceted exploration of our three-pronged theme, the Conroy Festival will once again offer an immersive, enticing mixture of author discussions and readings, book signings, original scholarship, performances, workshops, tours, receptions, and gatherings—highlighted this year by the release of the new anthology Our Prince of Scribes: Writers Remember Pat Conroy.
