About the Event
"When I thought God had abandoned me, I discovered that He had simply given me a different voice to praise the inexhaustible beauty of the made world." - Pat Conroy, My Losing Season.
In this presentation Jonathan will explore Conroy's spiritual and humanistic faith as reflected in the turbulent life and bestselling books - from his Roman Catholic upbringing to The Citadel's honor code, themes of spirituality in his writings, his life of service as a mentor to his fellow writers, and his connections to his "second church," First Presbyterian Church of Beaufort.
