Maps & Directions

Pat Conroy, the bestselling author of The Prince of Tides and The Great Santini among many other books, was beloved by millions of readers.  Bernie Schein was his best friend from the time they met in a high school pickup basketball game in Beaufort SC, until Conroy's death in 2016.  Both were popular athletes but also outsiders as a Jew and a Catholic military brat in the small-town Bible-Belt South, and they bonded.

Join us at the Coastal Discovery Museum as we hear stories and learn more from Schein's book, a love letter and homage, and a way to share the Pat he knew.

Cost is $7 per person for the program and reservations are required by calling 843-689-6767 ext. 223.
