22 Aug Pat Conroy Literary Center earns prestigious affiliation
The Pat Conroy Literary Center Is Now an Affiliate of the American Writers Museum
The Pat Conroy Literary Center has been newly selected as an affiliate of the American Writers Museum–the first site in South Carolina to receive this national designation.
“For our Conroy Center to be approved as an AWM affiliate on the basis of our first year’s worth of public programming and operations speaks volumes about all that we are doing here in Beaufort and beyond to continue Pat Conroy’s literary legacy.” said Conroy Center executive director Jonathan Haupt. “It’s a tremendous honor for everyone who supports the Conroy Center. And we’re in good company with the constellation of our fellow AWM affiliates across the country.”
The American Writers Museum Affiliates Program fosters collaboration among American author museums and homes to increase interest in the works of great American writers and to expand the public knowledge and appreciation for their unique contributions to our nation. To date, just over 70 sites nationwide have been selected for AWM affiliate status.
