PAT CONROY (pictured below from our Wall of Fame) was one of the store's best friends, and signed every new book for a quarter century here, and regularly signed his older titles. Without question, he was one of the most favorite, if not the favorite storyteller in America. We, along with a local author and a local librarian claim credit for introducing him to Sandra, the love of his life. We will miss him and forever pay tribute and be grateful that he signed our books..
