Event Details

Cassandra King was leading a quiet life as a teacher and novelist when she met one of the legendary figures of Southern Literature: Pat Conroy. Their two-year friendship blossomed into a long-distance relationship, and they ultimately married, ending his long commutes from coastal South Carolina to her native Alabama. It was a union that would last eighteen years, until the beloved literary icon’s death from pancreatic cancer in 2016.

In TELL ME A STORY: My Life with Pat Conroy, the woman he called “King Ray” looks back at her love affair with a natural-born storyteller whose lust for life was fueled by a passion for literature, food, and the Carolina Lowcountry that was his home.

The first 75 attendees will receive a copy of the book. Light refreshments will be served. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library and Hub City Bookshop.
