I have just discovered you Pat and am working back from My Reading Life to all of your other wondrous works. Do you ever come north.. to say, State College, PSU? You have so many fans up here and I am spreading your Water is Wide book far and wide . I teach philosophy but mainly seek to launch my students into their best possible future. Can you be persuaded to come this way?

This is my second time commenting your guest book because I can not get enough remarkable and inspiring books from such an amazing man. I beg you, please come to New York again. I have read all of your books and I'm going to start my second round through them. I am only 19 but Pat Conroy, you are shaping my life. I'd give anything to meet you, please consider New York. Thank you for being wonderful and making me believe.

Thank you for rekindling my love of novels. You touch so many places and times in my life. Charleston, Savannah, James Island, Sulllivans Island, Rome I live within walking distance of Rosedale Dr. and Callanwolde. My girls took piano lessons from a teacher whose house backs up to the estate. You raised the hair on the nape of my neck!

I love all of your books. Your tributes to teachers in the "cookbook" and "My Reading Life" are especially meaningful to me, a retired English teacher. I read passages to my husband, a chemistry professor who will retire after this term. Thank you for helping us realize that our work had meaning, even if we didn't have a Pat Conroy to validate our contributions to the students who sat in our classrooms.

Have you thought of writing a picture book for young children about growing to be a writer? Writing from events of your life, the roles teachers/books played in your life, and how to grow an appreciation of words would be great themes. We, elementary school teachers who teach writing, use mentor texts as read alouds to teach kids to write. Also a picture book about your realization that father was ready to play an important role in history would be a profound read for kids whose fathers served and maybe died in Afganistan or Iraq. I challenge you-to at least think about what you could share with elementary kids. Take a look @Eve Bunting for powerful children's lit. Picture books do not have many words, but what words, ideas, and inspirations and you could share w/kids.

Hello Pat,
We are always excited about your success. Who would have thunk when you pounded me as a knob, and taught Becky at BHS you would have come to this. We are fans, J&B Tolson

Thank you for writing an extraordinary book. I also attended Beaufort HS and was had Mr. Norris for 11th grade English and Mrs. Vella for French. I visited Mrs. Hunter's Library. I graduated in 1972. My father was also a fighter pilot, really an RIO,stationed at MCAS. He was killed in Vietnam on the morning of TET and is buried at the National Cemetary in Beaufort. He also served at Chosen in Korea. Your story articulated my grief journey as I also struggled to reconstruct and "know" my father. From your book, I realize how much of the Marine Corps is part of my psyche. I hadn't thought so much about that. When I visit a military base, I still yearn for an adult understanding of my childhood in Beaufort. The part about our fathers, in their youth, saluting us kids brought me to tears.

I just finished reading "My Reading Life" and loved it. Through this book, you and I had coffee together every morning. It was wonderful! My favorite quote: "Reading and prayer are both acts of worship to me." Amen, Mr. Conroy. Amen. :)

Pat, "My Reading Life" is the first book I downloaded to the Kindle I got for Christmas. I've read all your books and I think this one will become my new favorite. I was laughing out loud reading the chapter on your time in Paris. Many thanks for giving us such a jewel!
