Pat Conroy Literary Center Book Club: The Water Is Wide, with Discussion Leader Mollie Barnes
USC Beaufort professor of English Mollie Barnes will lead a book club discussion of Pat Conroy's second book, The Water Is Wide, published in 1972 and twice adapted for film. 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 book beforehand. Copies are available for purchase at the Conroy Center and at Beaufort's independent bookstore, NeverMore Books, the Beaufort Bookstore, and McIntosh Book Shoppe.

Though the children of Yamacraw (Daufuskie) Island live less than two miles from the southern mainland, they cant name the US president or the ocean that surrounds them. Most cant read or write. Many of the students are the descendants of slaves, handicapped by poverty and isolation. When Pat Conroy arrives, an eager young teacher at the height of the civil rights movement, he finds a community still bound by the bitter effects of racism, but he is determined to broaden its members horizons and give them a voice.

In this poignant memoir, which Newsweek called an experience of joy, the New York Times bestselling author of The Prince of Tides plumbs his experiences as a young teacher on an isolated South Carolina island to reveal the shocking inequalities of the American education system.
