Flannery O’Connor: Her Last Stories

As we have done with Flannery O’Connor sessions since Pandemic, we will benefit through Zoom from the experience and insight of seasoned “O’Connor Guest Scholars” to guide our discussion and share their depth of insight on these four stories, all written near the end of her life, from lupus at age 39—Greenleaf, The Comforts of Home; Parker’s Back, and Revelation. This series will complete our journey through her fiction writing, and also look at the foundations of those stories—in Greek tragedy, comedy, and philosophy.
