Philadelphia Weekly Fall Book Picks: Flannery & Caroline

Thanks to the Philadelphia Weekly newspaper for selecting THE LETTERS OF FLANNERY O’CONNOR AND CAROLINE GORDON as a fall reading pick (22 September 202018-06-11 09_09_40-flanneryoconnorposter (1)18):

Learn about the craft of writing and the friendship between two of the most renowned 20th-century American Southern writers. Compiling a collection of letters between Flannery O’Connor and Caroline Gordon, Associate Professor of English at the University of the Sciences Christine Flanagan showcases a 13-year correspondence and its influence on O’Conner’s works. “This girl is a real novelist,” wrote Gordon in response to “Wise Blood,” O’Connor’s first novel. “She is already a rare phenomenon: a Catholic novelist with a real dramatic sense, one who relies more on her technique than her piety.” | Release date: Oct. 1. Hardcover at Headhouse Books, $32.95. headhousebooks.com/book/9780820354088
