The Pat Conroy Literary Festival was as enchanting as I thought it would be. I was there for the day on a Saturday and felt the magic of the Festival as soon as I arrived in downtown Beaufort, SC. Pat Conroy's presence was felt by everyone there, as one program followed another. Besides his literary talents, it's his big heart, his generosity that was best remembered. I was honored to be a part of the readings from the anthology Found Anew, published by the University of South Carolina Press and edited by R. Mac Jones and Ray McManus.
It was one of those days that somehow feels just perfect. I hope I can attend again next year to feel some more of that magic.
