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.

Searching today to see if any latest work I saw the sad news of Pat's passing. I came upon him via The Prince of Tides movie and after reading the book, better as always than the film, I bought and read, reread all his books, His greatest talent to me was the words spoke from the page in the soft Carolinas accent of the South.
Here's to re reading and remembering one of the great American/World authors.

I was shocked to learn about the passing of my favorite author, and ashamed I only found out just now. I discovered his work in my teens and to this day, few things have a more soothing, inspiring effect on me than reading Pat Conroy. I wish I could have met him once in my life to tell him how much his books meant to me. My sincere condolences to his family.
