March Forth on March Fourth
The Pat Conroy Literary Center will hold its second annual March Forth on March Fourth day of learning on Sunday, March 4th, at the Frissell Community House at Penn Center on St. Helena Island. Commemorating the second anniversary of Pat Conroy's death, March Forth on March Fourth will be a day-long embrace of nature, poetry, fiction, and fellowship among writers and readers in the heart of Conroy's beloved lowcountry.
