Event Details

“The great teachers of the world fill you up with hope and shower you with a thousand reasons to embrace all aspects of life.”— Pat Conroy

Explore bestselling author Pat Conroy’s reverence for the art of teaching and his own legacy as a teacher. Pat Conroy Literary Center executive director Jonathan Haupt will discuss informative, inspirational profiles of representative teachers from Conroy’s formative years as a student at Beaufort High School and profiles of Conroy’s own students at BHS and on Daufuskie Island. Using photos and excerpts from published and unpublished writings by and about Conroy, this 60-minute presentation will broaden our appreciation for the beloved writer’s great love of teaching and of his adopted home in the South Carolina lowcountry. This program also includes an overview of the nonprofit Conroy Center in Beaufort, which continues Conroy’s legacy as a mentor. This program will be presented online.
