The Pat Conroy Literary Festival Presents State of the Heart: South Carolina Writers on the Places They Love at LPC Sunday, November 3rd, 4:30-6:00pm. “State of the Heart reminds us of what is best about South Carolina and her many gifted writers, the monumental power of this place to shape our memories into stories and then our stories into art." - Pat Conroy, from the foreword to volume 1

More than 100 writers from across the Palmetto State have shared their place-based memories in the three-volume anthology State of the Heart: South Carolina Writers on the Place They Love. As the closing event of the fourth annual Pat Conroy Literary Festival, a panel of six of those accomplished writers will share stories of their favorite places in and beyond our lowcountry.

Free and open to the public, this event is presented in partnership between the Pat Conroy literary Center and LPC and will feature State of the Heart editor Aida Rogers and contributing writers Margaret Evans, J. Drew Lanham, John Lane, Mary Alice Monroe, and Jon Pineda.

A book signing will follow the discussion.
