It was wonderful! I had a little trouble finding the Center so I arrived a few minutes after closing time. The staff told me to take my time, and I met a wonderful lady who went to high school with Pat Conroy and she showed me her yearbook with pictures of Pat. My only regret is that I didn't buy anything because I have most of his books!

Anyone who loves the writings of Pat Conroy should make a point of visiting the Conroy Literary Center in Beaufort, SC. The material gathered there is fascinating and the docents are well informed, helpful, courteous, and passionate about the Center. The Center is conveniently located in “downtown” Beaufort, a town that played a key role in Conroy’s development. In the SC Lowcountry, this should be on anyone’s “must visit” list.

Full of memorabilia from Conroy's life and writing. Lots of items with personal significance. Among southern writers he is a major figure, and the most open about his life. Here you feel like you have been allowed into his home. When we visited, his sister was there explaining the artifacts that include things like Pat's basketball trophies to the desk where he wrote to his father's (Santini) flight jacket. A small museum, but admission is free and well worth a stop for anyone who loves to read.
