Pat Conroy in Camden at Books on Broad

A large crowd this past Thursday afternoon at Books on Broad in Camden as world famous author Pat Conroy signed copies of his latest book The Death of Santini which continues the story of his father Donald Conroy, who was made famous in an earlier book The Great of Santini.  Conroy says he wrote his latest book to portray the second half of his father’s life and how his father changed from the person he wrote about in The Great Santini and into a much better person and a good father.  Conroy said after his father passed away he felt he owed it to Donald Conroy’s memory to write about how he had become a changed person.  Conroy is the author of numerous bestsellers including The Prince of Tides, The Lords of Discipline and The Great Santini which was later made into a hit movie.
