My Wound is Geography:
Pat Conroy and the Lowcountry
Highlighting a wealth of materials from the Pat Conroy Archive at the University of South Carolina Libraries, this exhibit explores Conroy’s relationship with the Lowcountry. From his time at Beaufort High School as a basketball star, his four years spent at the Citadel, his year teaching on Daufuskie Island, and his life spent in his adopted hometown of Beaufort, South Carolina, Conroy’s writings are inspired, influenced, and molded by the Lowcountry’s people, traditions, and landscape. Featuring works such as The Water is Wide, The Great Santini, The Prince of Tides, and his most recent memoir The Death of Santini as well as personal scrapbooks, photographs, letters, cover artwork, and promotional pieces, this exhibit examines the impact this region of South Carolina had on Conroy and his internationally renowned and beloved books.
The exhibit is in the ballroom of the Verdier House and will be up from October 23, 2015 until March 31, 2016. The exhibit is included in the admission to the Verdier House. The Verdier House is open from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm Monday through Saturday.
