The Beaufort District Collection and the Beaufort Branch Library are teaming up to bring author Bernie Schein to share his cherished memories about his friend, Pat Conroy on October 1, 2019.
The Author Book Talk is first come, first seated so we'll open the doors to the Beaufort Branch Meeting Room at 1:30pm for anyone interested in learning more about the sometimes stormy relationship between the two outsiders who first stumbled into each other's lives in early 1960s Beaufort - and fell into a friendship that extended beyond Pat's death in 2016.
Watch Bernie talk about his book, a labor of love, in this YouTube video.
After reading Margaret Evans's book review in the Lowcountry Weekly, I'm sure that you'll want to read the book yourself - and won't want to miss out on this free opportunity to ask questions of the man who wrote the book on the subject of this particular bromance. In fact, she convinced me to read the whole thing - rather than the usual cursory scanning that I do while picking out new materials for the BDC. Randomly turning pages, I fell upon page 97 - and laughed out loud - and it didn't even have anything to do directly with Pat.
In other words, the book is a treat - and a treat to which one should treat one's self - and if you want to put a cherry on the top on that treat -- come to the Beaufort Branch Library on Tuesday, October 1 at 2:00 pm for the Author Book Talk.
