Flannery O’Connor

Flannery O’Connor was born on March 25, 1925 and died on August 3, 1964. She was an American novelist and short story writer well known for her Southern Gothic style. Her Complete Stories, published posthumously, earned her the 1972 U.S. National Book Award for Fiction.


“She was not just the best ‘woman writer’ of this time and place: she expressed something secret about America called ‘the South’, with that transcendent gift for expressing the real spirit of a culture that is conveyed by those writers who become nothing but what they see. She was a genius.” – New York Times



“She is a modern writer in the widest sense, in that her stories are all preoccupied with obsessions at the heart of our modern world.” – Times Literary Supplement



We will be discussing four short stories by O’Connor:



A Good Man is Hard to Find

Everything that Rises Must Converge

A Temple of the Holy Ghost
