Join us as the Pat Conroy Literary Festival welcomes back Bernie Schein, author of Pat Conroy: Our Lifelong Friendship. A love letter and homage, and a way to share the Pat he knew, this book collects Schein’s cherished memories about the gregarious, welcoming, larger-than-life man who remained his best friend, even during the years they didn’t speak. It offers a trove of insights and anecdotes that will be treasured by Pat Conroy’s many devoted fans.
“Honest in its portrayal of both Conroy and Schein’s own conflicted feelings toward the novelist, the lucid narrative deftly explores the complexities of a lifelong friendship. A thoughtful, poignant, and candid memoir perfect for Conroy fans.”—Kirkus Reviews
Free and open to the public, this event will be held upstairs in the Old Bay Marketplace in historic downtown Beaufort. A book signing will follow the session.
