Donald Patrick Conroy, 1945–2016

Story River Books was born out of Pat Conroy's deep belief in the transformative power of story and his abiding generosity to writers and readers alike. With his unrivaled experience and boundless encouragement, he mentored his Story River Books authors in the craft of writing and the art of authorship, serving as a remarkable model of what a great writer can mean to his or her community. Pat was Story River's stalwart champion and our beloved friend. We will miss him dearly.
