Pat Conroy’s Reverence for Teaching


Event Details


The Coastal Discovery Museum will Host Jonathan Haupt on October 9 at 3 p.m., for this program about Pat Conroy. Explore best-selling author Pat Conroy’s reverence for the art of teaching and his own legacy as a teacher through informative profiles of representative teachers from Conroy’s formative years as a student at Beaufort High School and through profiles of Conroy’s own students at BHS and on Daufuskie Island. Using photos, video and audio clips, and excerpts from published and unpublished writings by and about Conroy, the class will broaden our appreciation for the beloved writer’s great love of teaching and of his adopted home in the South Carolina lowcountry.

Jonathan will also have copies of the new book that he co-edited, “Our Prince of Scribes: Writers Remembers Pat Conroy” available for sale. Haupt is the executive director of the Pat Conroy Literary Center and the founding director of the annual Pat Conroy Literary Festival.
