Pat Conroy Literary Center Book Club: The Boo, with Discussion Leader John Warley
Novelist John Warley, a Citadel '67 classmate of Pat Conroy's, will lead a book club discussion of Conroy's first book, The Boo, which the famed author self-published in 1969. Free and open to the public, this event will be held at the Pat Conroy Literary Center. Advance registration required; seating is limited.
As this is an interactive book club discussion event, participants are asked to read The Boo beforehand. Copies of The Boo are available for purchase at the Conroy Center and at Beaufort's independent bookstore, NeverMore Books, the Beaufort Bookstore, and McIntosh Book Shoppe.
"The book, in essence, is the love affair of Courvoisie (The Boo) for the cadets and his school. The stories within the book were not written maliciously or callously; they were written to show an inside view of the long gray line, an intimate view not often afforded to the general public. The Citadel is quirky, eccentric, and unforgettable. The Boo and I collaborated on this book to celebrate a school we both loveeach in our different ways. Proceeds for the book will go to a gift fund honoring Citadel graduates killed in Viet Nam."--Pat Conroy, from the preface to The Boo
