About The Event
We begin 2022 with the return of writer Cassandra King Conroy as she brings us Tell Me A Story, her memoir of her life before and with Pat Conroy.
We hope some of you recall her presentation in November 2014 of her novel Moonrise or that of April 2017, when she brought Pat Conroy’s last book A Lowcountry Heart to us.
“Penned with a profound sense of love, keen sense of humor, and great, great regret, Cassandra King [Conroy] allows us inside the most personal things, a love, with a man who truly was larger than life.”
–Rick Bragg, Pulitzer Prize winner and bestselling author of All Over But the Shoutin’

About the Book
“In this poignant, intimate memoir, the woman he called King Ray looks back at her love affair with a natural-born storyteller whose lust for life was fueled by a passion for literature, food, and the Carolina Lowcountry that was his home. As she reflects on their relationship and the eighteen years they spent together, cut short by Pat’s passing at seventy, Cassandra reveals how the marshlands of the South Carolina Lowcountry ultimately cast their spell on her, too, and how she came to understand the convivial, generous, funny, and wounded flesh-and-blood man beneath the legend—her husband, the original Prince of Tides”.
