Flannery O’Connor Symposium in Louisiana This November

What better place for a Flannery O’Connor symposium than Louisiana this November? (Well, maybe Milledgeville, but let’s not split hairs). And it looks like a terrific lineup.

Flannery O'Connor symposium 2012“Flannery O’Connor: The Legacy of a Southern Catholic Writer” will be held in Lafayette, La., the weekend of Nov. 9, 2012. In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of O’Connor speaking at UL Lafayette and the recent discovery of a recording of her talk, the university, along with Our Lady of Wisdom Catholic Church & Student Center, Friends of the Humanities and Deep South Magazine, present a symposium of speakers and activities based on the Southern Gothic writer.
