My husband and I are visiting Charleston this weekend, having spent today in Beaufort, mostly because of your novels! I still remember a most generous thing you did for me many years ago when I was a high school librarian in Kansas. I had recommended The Prince of Tides to a student, who told her friends how wonderful it was. Soon they had all read it and wanted me to schedule a meeting so they could discuss it. That was the beginning of a terrific book club of high school readers. We sent a picture of the kids with a letter telling you how much your books meant to them. You wrote a gracious handwritten response, a note which I treasure to this day. The students have never forgotten that generous gesture.

Dear Mr. Conroy, I just finished listening to your audio book, My Reading Life. I love listening to author's read their own works, for the reasons you mentioned in the interview. I have read South of Broad, actually I read it aloud to my wife. I have always enjoyed reading aloud and have done so as often as possible. Many hours reading to my wife, our son, and his classmates at times, and to some of the people I have taken care of over the years (I am a Certified Nursing Assistant). Sharing a love for story, I, too, am a Southern Reader. Like you I love Southern Writers, i.e., Faulkner, JK OToole (finally read CofDunces) actually, listened to audio. I love Harry Crews, Larry Brown, Lewis Grizzard, and many others. I was born in Lexington, KY grew up in Columbus, GA and ATLGA

Oh Mr. Conroy, how your interview yesterday with Walter Edgars moved me. Listening to you talk about your life and your family with grace and humor describing situations that would bring most people to their knees made me realize that it was time to reach out to my family and try and make peace. Thank you.

I have always admired and loved your work. Question on "My Reading Life" - Early in the book you told a story about meeting Archibald Rutledge-SC Poet Laurate. Towards the end of the book when talking about James Dickey, you said "He was the first poet I ever met". This appears to be a proofing error that has troubled me. Please explain.

Our son just graduated from Boot Camp from Parris Island, and we stayed in Beaufort for a few extra days and picked up an autographed copy of The Death of Santini, love the town, and love Pat's writing.
Thank you

We traveled from Knoxville for your kickoff of your new book tour of the Death of Santini in Oct. at the USCB. .We love Beaufort, and visit there a couple of times each year. It was a pleasure meeting you and hearing your stories about the book. Thoroughly enjoyed the book, and all of your books! Your inspiration has helped us in dealing with the dysfunction that exists in our family! We recently heard of your appearance on April 23 in Knoxville and are hosting a table of our friends and, your fans, at this event! So much looking forward to hearing you again! Your honesty, and writing is amazing! The best to you and your family!

Dear Mr Conroy

May I begin with what is most dearest to my heart Thank You. All your books have made my heart beat faster, made me stay up at night, miss bus and train stations, however your latest book has made me re-evaluate my whole life and long held beliefs. Your honesty I cherish more than words can convey (in my case anyway). I wish you love that doesn't hurt and a hand that holds yours. Many thanks for everything, you made my life better. Warm wishes Liz Rodriguez

Thank you for The a Death if Santini. Your writing is so very powerful that I become an emotional wreck. Your father so reminds me of mine that I find your work painful but I always read all you have written. I look forward to your next book. Again, thank you. Philip Kazan

Mr. Conroy,

I am nearly finished with the Death of Santini. I had planned on reading "The Great Santini" for years - but tend to read more biography and history than fiction. I read the Great Santini in preparation and thoroughly enjoyed it. I plan to read all of your works in the next couple of years. Your family reminds me very much of mine - especially the miners from rural Alabama. The stories of how grand the Woodford clan had been "when it virtually ruled" Wales has been very difficult to verify - as was your mother's view of her early life. Thanks for some great books.

George.
