Anchorage 1770 owners and operators Frank ’89 and Amy Barwick Lesesne ’89 and Wofford professor of English and environmental studies John Lane ’77 helped celebrate the 70th birthday of Pat Conroy, author of “Prince of Tides,” “Beach Music,” “South of Broad” and other best-selling novels.

Anchorage 1770, on the Beaufort, S.C., coast, provided the setting for the special literary festival. Lane participated in the poetry panel and reading. Below is his journal entry about the experience.
