                  Conroy’s latest work gives valuable insight

                  It’s been said that you can get a quick fix on someone by seeing what he or she reads. Editor Don Whitten points out that’s not always easy to do, but is with one of the South’s favorite authors, Pat Conroy, whose latest book, “My Reading Life,” takes readers on a trip through his library and education to see how and why Conroy writes as he does. Conroy will be in town Wednesday to sign copies of the new book at 5 p.m. at Off Square Books. (November 2, 2010, Page 4)

Those things, plus money, may help Johnny learn to read better, but probably not any more than things his parents, siblings and relatives could do at home. Editor Don Whitten calls on family members to do their part in the education process as well. (September 28, 2010, Page 4)
