Your books have made a tremendous impression on me and my daughters! We just finished South of Broad and didn't want it to end. I grew up in Wiscasset, ME. and have visited your beautiful part of the world several times. Breathtaking beauty in both places. We are looking forward to our annual Oyster Festival and think it is an event you might enjoy. I have your cookbook and know you enjoy oysters- can't imagine roasting them, though.
Come to Damariscotta on September 26th and see what you are missing! Keep writing. Wishing you continued success,
Paula

I just finished reading your "South of Broad," Pat and it is the best book I've read in years. You write about my second favorite city in the world behind Paris. I think James Joyce would be please. And not because you named a character after one of his characters. You both have mastered the English language. We don't know how beautiful our language is until an artist like yourself plays it like a musical instrument. I hear you're writing about Atlanta next. That's where I grew up. I can't wait!

I had given up on fiction. But, because of the article in Southern Living, and a love of all good things Southern, I read South of Broad. To think, I discovered my favorite author at the age of 54. Thank you for writing in a way that speaks to the rhythms of my mind and heart.

Sonoma Book Buddies has chosen SOUTH OF BROAD for our book selection. It should be a lively discussion. I am going to serve benne seed crackers too!
Thank you for all the inspiration!

Mr. Conroy,
PLEASE tell me that there will be a film adaptation for South of Broad. This is one of my favorite books ever. I have read it numerous times already.

Hi Pat,
Take a look at Sacred Heart Academy Belmont, NC on Facebook. We are trying to find as many old classmates as we can and would love to have you check out the site and become a friend.

Mr. Conroy:

I am reading South of Broad. What a jewel! I met you a few years at the SC Teachers of English conference in Greenville when they were honoring your beloved English teacher, Mr. Norris. What a wonderful man, and I am so delighted I got to meet him and hear him speak. You were very cordial, and with your speech, you made all the English teachers in that room that day feel proud to be English teachers! It was definitely a highlight of my career, and I am privileged to have been a part of that special day. Your books always propel into the South in a way that allows me to become lost in its beauty and history. They also transport me beneath the surface into the side of the South that sometimes outsiders don't know. Thank you for bringing South Carolina to life!

Mr. Conroy,
This summer I was assigned to read your novel the Prince of Tides for my senior English class. I must admit that I was hesitant at first to dive into it, hardly being what you would call an avid reader. But as I entered your world of writings I discovered things, beautiful things about the south, about life, and about human nature. The most resonant was your explanation of how southerners don't cry when it comes to frivelous things. All my life I've thought myself an outcast because during movies and books and what have you I could not shed one tear when most women could use their's to fill the entire Kanawha River. Through your writing I understand the beauty of tradition, sincerity, and simplicity. I thank you for making me open my eyes to this small southern town.
