Pat Conroy's Reverence for Teaching

At Hampton Plantation State Historic Site

Although beloved writer Pat Conroy (1945-2016) served as a classroom educator for little more than three years, he remained a teacher and mentor to his fellow writers throughout his lifetime. In this special presentation, see Conroy in action as a teacher through representative remembrances of him excerpted from essays by the 67 contributors to the anthology "Our Prince of Scribes: Writers Remember Pat Conroy". Join Pat Conroy Literary Center executive director and volume co-editor Jonathan Haupt for a behind-the-book discussion of "Our Prince of Scribes" and of the formative role a meeting with Archibald Rutledge had on 16-year-old Pat Conroy, leading him to become the lifelong mentor encountered in the essay collection. A book signing will follow the presentation; all sales of "Our Prince of Scribes" benefit the educational mission of the nonprofit Conroy Center:
