BOOKS CAN BE LIFE CHANGING

 

 

One of my favorite authors is Pat Conroy.  I have always enjoyed letting him carry me away on the stories he writes.  I get wrapped up in the characters and the story itself.  Many of the people in his books are people I feel I know or have met in my life.

Pat Conroy is passionate about his work.  You can feel the passion as you read his books.  In reading his latest book I find he is passionate about reading, books, libraries, stories and the people who write them.   He shares how his mother influenced him from an early age to read.  Certain teachers encouraged him to read.  Libraries gave him access to read.

His life was changed by books and authors, helping him become the writer he is today.
