Virtual (literary) Vacation in August's Southern Living!

No money to travel this summer? Vacation over, but you still need an escape? Check out the August edition of Southern Living. It features an excerpt from author Pat Conroy's new novel South of Broad, set in Charleston, SC. Following that, Conroy plays tour guide and shows us his favorite spots in the city he loves. There's also a listing of some of the real-life locations that feature prominently in the new book.

You can sample more of Conroy's oeuvre in our collection. We have The Great Santini, Lords of Discipline which I always thought sounded like a great name for a metal band, The Water is Wide, Beach Music, My Losing Season, and Prince of Tides.
