“Books are living things, and their task lies in their vows of silence,” Pat Conroy told the City Paper in November. “If you do them the favor of understanding them, of taking in their portions of grief and wisdom, then they settle down in contented residence in your heart.” Conroy shares how the writing of others, from Margaret Mitchell to Thomas Wolfe, has influenced him in his new anthology, My Reading Life. He’ll be signing copies of his latest, as well as hard copies of his other works, at Blue Bicycle Books. Despite unfriendly weather, 300 people showed up to Conroy’s last signing at the downtown bookstore, so make sure you stop by the shop on Friday (starting at 10 a.m.) to pick up a line number. “Reading changed my entire life,” Conroy said. “I think I learned how to be and how to act by reading great books about great men and women. I learned how not to be my father. I learned how to be a gentleman.” —Susan Cohen
