Distinguished author Pat Conroy will be on WALTER EDGAR'S JOURNALFriday, April 18 at 12:00 p.m. on all ETV Radio stations.

In his 2013 memoir, The Death of Santini, Conroy admits that his father is the basis of the abusive fighter pilot he created for the title role of his novel, The Great Santini, and that his mother, brothers and sisters have all served as models for characters in The Prince of Tides and other novels. Now, for the first time, Conroy gathers with four of his five surviving siblings: Kathy, Tim, Mike, and Jim to talk about the intersection of “real life” and Conroy’s fiction, and what it was like to grow up with “the Great Santini” as a father.

A repeat broadcast is scheduled for Sunday, April 20 at 4:00 p.m. on the ETV Radio news service and will be available online at etvradio.org.
