I've been crazy about your writing since I read "The Great Santini" when it came out. My dad handed the book to me, and said, "Here's a book about me." I think, looking back, he meant Ben Meecham. My brothers and I viewed him as another Great Santini. Heh.

My all-time favorite is "The Lords of Discipline."

I blame you for my love of Spanish moss-covered oaks, the landscape of the coastal South, Charleston, and certain aspects of the military.

Looking forward to finally seeing you, in person, in Birmingham.

Best wishes for your book and tour.

I was born in Montgomery, Alabama on a cold day in December. Raised in a family of five boys with a poor Mother from North Carolina, and a hard working dad from Crete, Greece. Early childhood memories of my brothers and I being loaded in the old family car to go to the 2nd Baptist Church one Sunday, the Greek Orthodox Church the next. Growing up in a very racially divided city on the out break of the civil rights movement, and going to school as a poor white kid in the mix of the very rich kids at Sidney Lanier High School as life in a modest southern city in the early 60s has led me to with to write about this period. Wish I had the skills to do so. Those days now haunt my memory....

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.
