Join us in beautiful Beaufort, South Carolina, this October to celebrate the writing life of best-selling author Pat Conroy. Through the great success of his eleven novels and memoirs, Conroy has become synonymous with his adoptive hometown of Beaufort, South Carolina, a place that is his literary muse and his residence. On the occasion of Conroy's seventieth birthday on October 26, 2015, the Pat Conroy at 70 festival will celebrate the legacy of this literary icon through special events centered around the University of South Carolina Beaufort's Center for the Arts—as well as through partnership events with Historic Beaufort Foundation, Beaufort History Museum, the Beaufort Film Society, and the Pat Conroy Archive at USC Libraries. Pat Conroy at 70 is organized by the University of South Carolina Press with support from the Humanities Council SC and other partners and sponsors.
