Pat Conroy Literary Festival 2017 - The Transformative Power of Education

The 2017 Pat Conroy Literary Festival will be held on October 19-22 in beautiful Beaufort, South Carolina. Come join us as we honor Pat Conroy as teacher and student through our theme of the Transformative Power of Education.

The Pat Conroy Literary Center, the festival’s new sponsor, will expand the circle of participants to include not only discussions of Southern literature and culture but, inspired by Pat’s love of teaching, we will celebrate The Transformative Power of Education, this year’s theme.
