International Symposium to be held on renowned American Catholic writer


“Reason, Fiction and Faith” is the title of an International Symposium on the American Catholic author Flannery O’Connor that will take place in Rome April 20-22. 

According to the organizers, the literary work of this writer “is distinguished for its rich combination of intelligence, literary art and Christian faith. Her short stories and novels reveal a penetrating understanding of the human condition, a moral vision without compromise and an artistic mastery of the first order.”


“Her letters, published posthumously in the volume ‘The Habit of Being,’ reveal a person who knew how to confront illness, suffering and death, and in the end eternal life, with profound faith and a notable sense of humor,” they said.
