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.
