Our Prince of Scribes: Writers Remember Pat Conroy
Presented by Jonathan Haupt.
“Writers of the world, if you’ve got a story, I want to hear it. I promise it will follow me to my last breath.”—Pat Conroy.
Although beloved writer Pat Conroy (1945-2016) served as a classroom educator for little more than three years, he remained a teacher and mentor to his fellow writers throughout his lifetime. In this one-hour presentation, see Conroy in action as a teacher through representative remembrances of him excerpted from essays by the 67 contributors to the anthology Our Prince of Scribes: Writers Remember Pat Conroy, edited by Nicole Seitz and Jonathan Haupt. This presentation also features Seitz’s hand-drawn sketches of the featured “Scribes.”
