South Carolina novelist Pat Conroy is taking on new projects late in his career. He is writing a young adult novel, his first. Conroy has also taken on the role of editor-at-large for Story River Books, a USC Press venture to highlight the new Palmetto State talent.
His previous books include The Prince of Tides, The Great Santini, The Lords of Discipline, and Beach Music.
In part two of his interview with South Carolina Radio Network, Conroy reads his new forward from a new compilation of South Carolina writers, “State of the Heart” and talks about his home state as a source.
