SOUTH OF BROAD is Pat Conroy's last novel and has a strong edge involving troubled characters. It is set in Charleston.
THIS COPY (shown below) was signed by Pat Conroy on the title page at the store. It is a new, unread first edition opened only for signing. Published in August, 2009 by Nan A. Talese, an imprint of Penguin Random House.
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.
