The first book of Pat Conroy I read was Beach Music .It was a recommendation of a United Airlines attendant as I checked-in in Atlanta.I was astounded by the book's story and the powerful language of the writer.It is a rare privilege when beauty of the words overpower story theme.So much so you are compelled to re-read words for their own beauty. When one finds such an author ,I read all the published works. I developed a appreciation of Pat Conroy's talent. Sure themes covered the Army ,the teacher the South in education ,sporting coach.The complex difficulties of a "Southener " in New York. The Southern stories that concluded in South of Broard. My search for the latest revealed sad news.USA has lost a great talent .

I started Lords of Discipline on May 15th and since then I have been hooked by Mr. Conroy's books. I have finished Lords of Discipline, South of Broad, and My Losing Season and hope to finish his collection by the end of summer. I only wish I learned of his books sooner and had the chance to meet this amazing writer. The way Mr. Conroy writes is like no other and I can't get enough of his characters, events, and emotion.

I just finished South of Broad this evening, and had never been to this site before. The book may be my all time fave and I was emotionally raw at its ending. Naturally when the page came up on my tablet, I just let out a cry and more tears came to know that so recently we lost this national treasure of a man. Kinda gives new meaning to the old cliche, all the good ones are taken. The characters in this last novel were so rich and flawed, beautifully human, especially Leo, a man I dream of meeting still, even though I related to all the major ladies in the book to one degree more or less, Molly, Fraser, Sheba and Starla. And I loved that he brought my home area into it, SF, city by the bay. Thanks Pat. God bless.

I am planning a trip to Charleston and Beaufort next spring and the first thing I did was go to Mr. Conroy's website where I learned of his passing. He will be truly missed. He could bring words and characters to life, whether mundane, happy or sad. I wrote to him telling him so and how much my mother and I enjoyed his books and how we laughed and laughed. He wrote a note back and to my mother which I treasure. Farewell to a great writer!

Rereading My Losing Season and thinking how much I miss this man and how much I wish there was one more book.

I read the article in the May 2016 edition of Southern Living about Mr. Pat Conroy. It moved me to enter this
note...I remember watching the movie "Conrack" when it was released in 1974, what a great production. I think I'll watch it again soon with my daughter, maybe it will instill some useful character in her, it did in me. Now I need to read the book.

Yesterday was the Public Memorial for Pat Conroy and I want to thank the person who posted portions of it. This fan, reader, stalker of all things Conroy, stayed up until the wee hours listening. Pat's wife Cassandra King spoke so beautifully of her larger than life husband. She commented about the Pat Conroy Literary Center that will be started and I thought, in whatever small way, I would like to be part of this. I have loved discovering his essays over the last few months. Coincidence was at work this morning as I was reading the newest edition of Coastal Living; whose essay was on the last page, Pat Conroy's! They noted the literary center as well. Would you please post updates about the center as they become available? Thank you and we miss you Pat.

Reply to webmaster Indeed, Pat Conroy Literary Center will be announced soon. It is a Beaufort base center and it needs all the support of all Pat's friends and readers in order to take root and carry on Pat's legacy. You will find out more soon in your email, on Pat Conroy Facebook and on the new Center Facebook page (not up yet!)

I have reread Pat's books since his passing and can visualize his words even more and they imprint with deeper resonance. I have taught at the secondary level, lived on the Atlantic coast, and been part of a military family, but Pat's words capture memories indelibly. I will miss the voice of his pen and humor.

I'm grateful for the masterful work of Pat Conroy. My warmest regards for his family and those who have so closely loved and lost him. I learned of his passing from a newspaper article just yesterday. I've my first complete work of fiction in the toolshed now and I owe so much to Pat's craftsmanship in the art of Southern story. I saw in him a command of self-expression laid bare, contused and bleeding to the world that moved me to strike a fire and rearrange the air a little. I earnestly pray and hope that I too will discover my truest self and share its discoveries with the known wide world. Rest easy, Pat. There is a great gettin' up morning promised us all.With appreciation and respect, --Curt.
