Flannery & Caroline in Philadelphia

026The Letters of Flannery O’Connor and Caroline Gordon with Christine Flanagan.  Wednesday, October 17, 2018 ~ 6:30 pm Philadelphia City Institute
1905 Locust Street (19th & Locust on W. Rittenhouse Square)
Philadelphia, PA 19103-5730

This correspondence showcases the little-known friendship between Flannery O’Connor and novelist Caroline Gordon, whose critiques not only fostered O’Connor’s career but occasioned a series of letters full of insights about the craft of writing.

Christine Flanagan, MFA, teaches creative writing and environmental humanities at University of the Sciences.

This program is co-sponsored by Friends in the City (FitC) and the Philadelphia City Institute Library, and will be held in the meeting room on the library’s lower level. We regret there is no elevator.

Books will be available at the event to purchase from Head House Books.
