The American Catholic Historical Society will host a lecture by Daniel Moran examining how Flannery O’Connor came to be regarded as a great American Catholic author.
The event will take place on Tuesday, April 17 at the society’s house, located at 263 South Fourth Street in Philadelphia. A social hour will begin at 5 p.m., followed by dinner at 6 p.m. and the lecture at 7 p.m.
Tickets are $15 for society members and $25 non-members. Registration is required by April 12. To RSVP, contact Nicholas Rademacher at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 610-902-8419.
Moran, who teaches at both Rutgers University and Monmouth University, is the author of Creating Flannery O’Connor (University of Georgia Press, 2016). In his presentation, Moran will assess how O’Connor’s work was received by contemporaries, along with the factors that shape the development of a literary reputation.
Discounted parking for this event is available after 5 p.m. at the Bourse Lot on South Fourth Street (above Chestnut Street).
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
