An Obituary of Note

'Prince of Tides' author Pat Conroy dead at 70 

While his novels claimed more attention, his memoir, The Water is Wide, about his days teaching in a very poor school on a barrier island off of the South Carolina coast, I found particularly inspiring during my early days of teaching.

Also, a literary aside:  I'm beginning to notice, as a generation of writers now mark their mortality, how influential was Thomas Wolfe.
