Join New York Times best-selling writer Pat Conroy and Catherine Seltzer, author of the newly published Understanding Pat Conroy, for what promises to be a lively discussion of the autobiographical and creative impulses that drive Conroy’s writing life.
“Pat Conroy is the only writer I know who is as passionate about rage as he is about tenderness, and that is what Catherine Seltzer’s profoundly insightful book tells us.”—Terry Kay
Conroy has written eleven books: novels, memoirs, an essay collection, a cookbook; but Seltzer's is the first in-depth study of his life and work.
A hardback copy of Understanding Pat Conroy, signed by both Conroy and Seltzer ($40 value) is included with the ticket price. A book signing at Blue Bicycle Books, 420 King St., will follow the talk.
How will the signing work?
Before the event, all ticket holders will also receive, via e-mail, a signing ticket with your group number on it. Groups will be determined based on order of purchase (i.e. tickets purchased in March are in first groups). Groups will be admitted to the signing every hour. You must have a ticket to atttend the signing.
Can I get my copy of Understanding Pat Conroy personally inscribed at the signing?
Can I buy other Conroy books to be signed?
Yes! Hardback copies of all of Conroy's books as well as additional copies of Understanding Pat Conroy will be available for purchase.
Can I bring my own Pat Conroy book?
You may bring one (1) total outside book total for Pat to sign.
I don't want to wait in line, can I still get a signed book?
Yes. You can pre-order signed copies of all of Pat's books here. We are unable to make personal inscriptions for pre-ordered books. Your copy of Understanding Pat Conroy will be pre-signed.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
Yes. Please also bring your email with your designated signing group.
