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).
