    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.
