1st year of high school in '67 sent me to Beaufort where dad, a USMC officer, would eventually retire and be buried. In the Lowcountry I did the typical things Southern kids of the 60’s did & something few would ever experience. At 15 or 16 my English teacher at Beaufort High,Pat Conroy, took our class over the Whale Branch Bridge to Charleston to attend a play at Dock Street Theater as well as tour the living museum of Lady Charleston. Pat was my Gene Norris.
To this day I cannot give a straight answer to the question, “Where are you from & what do you do?” However, I can say that I am a better person for having orbited with Pat. He took me to my 1st play & introduced me to SOB.

I actually ration your books as I read them. It's sick. Your writing paints pictures in the mind of the reader in a way that other writers can only dream of doing. You are a master of your craft. Good health and inspiration to you always as you have inspired so many people.

No one remembers what the speaker at their college graduation says. I remember every word of mine. Thanks for speaking Pat! My mother is coming to see you in Atlanta next week and pick up my copy of South of Broad. I will give up all pursuits of grad school until I have finished the book.

Only one thing has kept me from devouring this book- the return of my stepson from Afghanistan. I am a Citadel classmate of Pat and a fellow English major so I am able to cherish and chuckle at the great and not-so-great moments with Pat at "El Cid." God bless you, Pat. Jack Horn, "Co.

I so much enjoyed meeting Sallie Ann Robinson and bringing her to Georgia State. Our Gulla Celebration was very successful. Thanks so much for putting me in touch with her.

I look forward to South of Broad.

Thanks Pat, for inspiring, creating and bringing to life the characters you do. As an Army brat, from the day I read your first book, through The Great Santini, to South of Broad, you never leave my house once you enter. The emotions you instill in all your work makes me wish you could write more. I hate to begin one because I will then devour it and it is over. It is then picked up again and again until the pages are worn and dog-eared. Thank you once again for sharing yourself with us.

Got my copy of South of Broad yesterday and read the first 35 pages. As a homesick Charlestonian who has been in California for the past 20 years, this book is a treasure. Leo's paper route through the streets South of Broad was beautifully written. I think this will be the best novel ever!

Can't wait to read your newest book, Mr. Conroy. You are my hero in the world of Southern/American fiction. You wrote me back a million years ago and I treasure your words. Will hope to have you sign your book for me in Asheville if I can get up that way in Sept! Thanks for following your calling and being a writer of insight and truth. Love and prayers, Cynthia
