The Stories of Flannery O’Connor

Flannery O'Connor


On seven Monday evenings during January and February, beginning January 13, we’ll gather to discuss a short story written by Flannery O’Connor.  O’Connor, who died of lupus in 1964 at age 39, is one of the greatest American short story writers.  Her stories are saturated with God.  She said one time that, in each of her stories, a character is faced with a moment of grace.  How will s/he react?

But there is nothing sweet about her stories!  Her stories are often shocking.  They are full of odd characters and feature bizarre plot twists.  Our conversation will be lively!

We will gather on Monday evenings in the Fellowship Hall at 7:00 PM.  The book we’ll order is The Complete Stories.  The price for each copy will be about $14.  If you’d like us to order you a copy, please contact the church office by Sunday, December 22.
