Theology on Tap
Flannery O’Connor is extolled as one of the great Catholic writers of the modern era. But to wander into her stories or novels unawares is to find yourself in a strange, grotesque, and often violent land. During her life, O’Connor was often asked, “How can a good, Christian girl write this way?” This talk will endeavor to unpack O’Connor’s unique but fervently Catholic vision of the world, the surprising evangelization of her approach to writing, and how she might just be a modern-day saint.
