Pat Conroy Dead at 70

Word comes out of South Carolina tonight that beloved author Pat Conroy is dead. It was only on February 15 that Pat went public with the news that he was suffering from pancreatic cancer, so this has to be a huge shock to his fans all around the world.  It is hard to believe that this wonderful literary voice has been silenced forever.

Rest in peace, Pat.  We will miss you.


  1. So sad, a huge loss. I just snatched South of Broad out of a Little Free Library to read recently.

    1. Sounds like your Little Free Library is thriving, Teresa. That's a nice selection to find there. I haven't had the heart yet to re-read any of Pat's books, but I'm sure I'll be doing exactly that soon enough.
