Author John Warley To Appear on By The River
What exactly makes "a Southern girl"? Depending on where you grew up, the answer will likely differ. John Warley's book A Southern Girl is about the international adoption of his only daughter and the revelation of "subtle racism and exclusionary activities" that had played such a big role in his traditional southern upbringing. In his interview on By The River, Warley shares how his beloved late wife championed an idea of adopting a daughter from Korea. The process came with some heart-wrenching challenges and revelations, all of which Warley shares in his book.
Like many authors featured on By The River, Warley is a friend of the late Pat Conroy. They were classmates at The Citadel and baseball teammates, as well. Warley shares several memories of Conroy as a college student.
Conroy said about Warley's book, “...as stylish as a novel by John Irving and as tightly written as one by John Grisham. I wish I'd written this book."
By The River airs on Thursday at 8:00 p.m. on SCETV.
