Please join us when Katherine Clark presents and signs MY EXAGGERATED LIFE: Pat Conroy (As Told to Katherine Clark) , an oral biography that reveals the great Southern author's true voice. Pat Conroy's memoirs and autobiographical novels contain a great deal about his life, but there is much he hasn't revealed with readers until now. My Exaggerated Life is the product of a special collaboration between this great American author and oral biographer Katherine Clark, who recorded two hundred hours of conversations with Conroy before he passed away in 2016. In the spring and summer of 2014, the two spoke for an hour or more on the phone every day. No subject was off limits, including aspects of his tumultuous life he had never before revealed.
