19 Apr An Evening with Our Prince of Scribes at Coligny Theatre
Wednesday, October 30, 2019 at 6 PM – 7:30 PM
New York Times best-selling writer Pat Conroy (19452016) inspired a worldwide legion of devoted fans numbering in the millions, but none are more loyal to him and more committed to sustaining his literary legacy than the many writers he nurtured over the course of his 50-year writing life. In sharing their stories of Conroy in the award-winning anthology Our Prince of Scribes, his fellow writers honor his memory and advance our shared understanding of his lasting impact on 20th- and 21st-century literary life in and well beyond the American South.
As a special event of both the Crescendo arts celebration and the Pat Conroy Literary Festival, the Pat Conroy Literary Center in partnership with the Coastal Discovery Museum will host a panel discussion of Our Prince of Scribes–featuring contributing writers David Lauderdale, Ellen Malphrus, Sallie Ann Robinson, and Larry Rowland, moderated by Jonathan Haupt. $15/person. Books will be available for sale and signing after the discussion. Sales of Our Prince of Scribes help support the educational mission of the nonprofit Pat Conroy Literary Center.
