Best selling author Pat Conroy was known for his novels The Great Santini and The Water is Wide, among others. Fellow author Bernie Schein forged a close friendship with Conroy in high school that lasted until Conroy’s death in 2016.

Schein joined “Cty Lights” earlier this month to talk about his latest book, “Pat Conroy: Our Lifelong Friendship.” He began by talking about the day that he and Conroy first met.
