In this live interview at Unity Temple on the Plaza in Kansas City, renowned author Pat Conroy talks with Vivien Jennings (Rainy Day Books) about his evolution as a writer.  From his time in the military school, The Citadel, to the turbulent relationship with his abusive father—the man who would ultimately shape the lead character of his novel, The Great Santini, to the hilarious story of how Barbara Streisand was cast for the movie version of his book, The Prince of Tides, Conroy delivers a masterful performance that is both poignant and amusing.
