Media events and book tour

While Pat Conroy has had to limit the number of speaking engagements he can accept while working on upcoming book projects, with the publication of his new novel, South of Broad, Pat Conroy will be participating in a number of book signings and appearances throughout the fall and winter. We hope you will be able to stop by at the places listed below and see him.

In order to meet as many fans as possible at his events, Mr. Conroy will sign two books per customer – either two copies of SOUTH OF BROAD or one SOUTH OF BROAD and one backlist title – and copies must be purchased at the event store. Mr. Conroy will not personalize.

SOUTH OF BROAD by Pat Conroy

 Book in stores on August 2009


First novel in 14 years from the gifted spinner of Southern tales (Beach Music, 1995, etc.)-a tail-wagging shaggy dog at turns mock-epic and gothic, beautifully written throughout…. Conroy is a natural at weaving great skeins of narrative, and this one will prove a great pleasure to his many fans. -- Kirkus Starred Review
