On Sunday July 26 your new book was touted in the Harrisburg "Patriot News," circulation over 400,000. It was recommended on the front page of the arts section.

A fan, a Fripp Island snowbird, and a former teacher of English who cherishes good writing!

Stately Pat Conroy, you are my favorite author I've read all your books, some of them more than once. My bookclub,"The Bibliobabes" read 'Beach Music" a few years ago ...such discussion it generated!. I'm from Ireland, have never been to a basketball game, don't know anything about basketball, but this did not interfere with my thorough enjoyment of " The Losing Season" Your books have helped me learn a lot about the American and Southern way of life. Cant wait for "South of Broad" Thank you, thank you

When I was 30 years old, I read Prince of Tides, and I have
absolutely loved your photography with words ever since.
Thank you so much for the great visuals. I am now much older,
and I cannot wait to read the new book!

Mr. Conroy, you have been my favorite author for many years. Your writing style and phrasing can make me catch my breath.
Please make an appearance in the Dallas, Texas area. One of my greatest regrets is that I was unable to attend a speaking engagment of yours at my alma mater, The University of North Texas in the mid-90's. Seeing you in person is on my "bucket list."

Can't wait to read your new book. It will, as always, be a delicious journey home for me who grew up in South Carolina and now live in New Orleans. In addition to our beloved lowcountry beauty, we have something else in common. Your book jacket photo was taken by our good friend David Spielman who has photographed my children at the great passages of their lives - so far. I'm sending my sister to one of the signings to get a copy for me - she still lives in SC. Best to you and your wife.

Looking foward to South of Broad. Hope to see you at the book signing here in Asheville at The Captain's Bookshelf. I can't think of anything better than the anticipation that comes with opening your books to the first page. I've read them all - and all have been a wonderful journey. You capture the soul of the south.

Looking forward to seeing you in Asheville. Missed the event when you were here in 2003.

Oh my goodness, Pat Conroy, what have you done now?
Rewritten Ulysses setting it down in the lowcountry?
Or written a fictional biography of Jimmy
Brynes?
At least, you didn't take a hike on the Appalachian Trail!
(I'm a native Newberrian and devoted fan after all you did for our Opera House!)
My regards and love to you, Cassandra, the Andersons and the Memory of Cooter!

I am overwhelmed with your work. Your use of desciptive adjectives is a true art. As a born southern, and a product of the strange southern code of living, I relate to your lonesome stories.

I hope someday I get to meet you at a book signing. I live in the cradle of the SOUTH, Franklin, Tennessee. I teach high school creative writing to students who still believe the south won the War of Northern Agression.

I look forward to your new book.

Mr Conroy- You amaze me by capturing both the beauty of the lowcountry and the chaos that can occur when you are not on the front porch drinking juleps and nibbling on cheese straws. You go a level deeper by understanding how we can love those who are your family although they inflict wounds that can never completely heal. You, sir, understand the finesse of a backhanded compliment.
I look forward to every book you publish, I devour it and then I hunger for the next.
