Part of me can't wait to deploy to the AOR at the end of the year. I've had South of Broad on my nightstand for months, but I've been saving it for my first night away from home. While in Korea in 96-98 I picked up Beach Music and was taken back home every night that I had time to flip through the pages. Since then I've read it multiple times whenever I wanted to be reminded of that joy. Though we're apart from our families and in countries far away it's books like these that make us feel closer to our families and the familiar smell of the salt marshes we grew up around. If anyone has books they no longer need I'd encourage you to donate them to the troops through any number of charities. We love the goodies everyone sends but nothing beats a good book!

Dr. Mr. Conroy:
I saw the story on GMA about Shannon Faulkner's battle to attend the Citadel. At the time these events unfolded, I was on active duty in the Army, serving as a Drill Sergeant at Fort Jackson, SC. As a woman & an Army Veteran of Desert Storm, I was incensed at the bigotry I witnessed. Ms. Faulkner may not have been the ideal candidate to attend such an institution, but she had the courage and tenacity to assert her (and every other woman's) right to try.

Your email to GMA re this subject touched my heart, for I could hear you were genuine in calling Shannon your Citadel Sister. You, sir, have my profound respect and eternal gratitude. If you educated even one person with your actions, it was a move forward. Miles to go!
Respectfully,

Lisa Thomas

I heard the most inspiring update this morning on Shannon (Faulkner). I was so moved to know of the role you played in her life, as we share a similar background. Thank you for your spirit! I first fell in love with your writings with the movie "Conrack". I look forward to reading more of your works.
Blessings always...

Thanks so much for your wonderful words for Shannon on this morning's Goodmorning America. You have made a difference in her life as well as ours. May the best be with you in this blessed season of the year.

I was very proud to see the story on Good Morning America about the first female student which I knew about but didn't know it was you who paid for her college education.

My husband, Gabriel Katzka, produced the film "The Lords of Discipline" which, today, would be much more successful than it was then. There are times when there is no telling what the public will go for. From the first studio screening (where I almost jumped out of my seat during the railroad sequence) we all thought we had a hit on our hands. So, you have gone from the first black to the first woman - you certainly are/were ahead of your time. Yours sincerely.

I had the great pleasure of attending a benefit for the SC Autism Society last night and hearing Mr. Conroy speak. I can only think of one word to describe the experience ~ WOW! So many entertaining, touching and amusing stories within such a short period of time. I feel truly fortunate to have been there. Thank you also for writing a wonderful note in SOB to my parents that will definitely be their favorite Christmas gift and for posing with a photo with me. Thank you as well for taking the time to make each of us who stayed afterwards to speak to you feel truly special. Like you said ~ we were all there for a reason last night (and although I don't know what it is yet ~ I know I will).
Thank you again ~ It was an honor to attend and meet you!

I just finished "Beach Music"...the last of your fabulous books, as I had missed this one. "South of Broad" was amazing as well. All of your books have helped me in some strange way to come to grips with some of the unpleasant memories I have had with my own childhood. Thank you for sharing such poignant stories that have the magic of healing in the messages contained throughout. Please keep writing...I look forward to your next best seller!
