Introduction to Flannery O’Connor: Relationships Anagogy, Legacy

We will again benefit through Zoom from the experience and insight of seasoned, yet new to us “O’Connor Guest Scholars” who will share their deep insight on the formative relationships she had, influences on her writing, and some of the implications of reading O’Connor. We will revisit two of her short stories—The Displaced Person and Everything That Rises Must Converge—and also focus on one of her essays in Mystery and Manners—The Nature and Aim of Fiction as well as some correspondence with her friends. We invite newcomers, and warmly welcome back our regular O’Connor fans. Presenters: Craig Martell and several “O’Connor Guest Scholars”
