2nd Annual Lowcountry Book Club Convention

921 Ribaut Rd, Beaufort, SC, 29902
Now an annual event, the Pat Conroy Literary Center's Lowcountry Book Club Convention is a day of educational conversations and fellowship programs for book club members and those considering joining a book club. This free public event is presented in partnership with the Technical College of the Lowcountry and funded in part by a gift from the Pulpwood Queens book club.
Keynoting our 2nd annual Lowcountry Book Club Convention will be Annie Spence, author of Dear Fahrenheit 451: Love and Heartbreak in the Stacks in conversation with fellow librarian James E. McTeer II, author of the lowcountry novel Minnow. Look for a full schedule of events and free registration information to be posted later this summer.
Part of the Pat Conroy Literary Center's Visiting Writers Series, this program is sponsored in part by South Carolina Humanities, a not-for-profit organization; inspiring, engaging and enriching South Carolinians with programs on literature, history, culture and heritage.
About our keynote presenter: Annie Spence can read while doing almost anything else: walking, cooking breakfast, pretending to be interested in a conversation. She has spent the last decade as a librarian at public libraries in the Midwest and lives in Detroit with her husband and son. A librarian's laugh-out-loud funny and deeply moving collection of love letters and breakup notes to the books in her life, Dear Fahrenheit 451 is Spence's first book.
