Professor Christine Flanagan Tours to Lecture on Recent Book
Christine Flanagan, MFA, professor of English at USciences, presented several lectures related to her research about Flannery O’Connor and Caroline Gordon, about which she wrote her most recent book.
Flanagan gave a talk “Flannery O’Connor, Caroline Gordon, and the Art of Fiction” at Loyola University-Chicago’s Third Biennial Catholic Imagination Conference, September 19-21, 2019 and gave a lecture at the University of Dallas on the same topic.
These talks were based on her most recent book “The Letters of Flannery O’Connor and Caroline Gordon” which was published by the University of Georgia Press in 2018. This correspondence showcases the little-known friendship between Flannery O'Connor and novelist Caroline Gordon, whose critiques not only fostered O’Connor's career but occasioned a series of letters full of insights about the craft of writing.
Flanagan’s book was reviewed by Sophia Stid for the Flannery O’Connor Review volume 17 published in 2019. It was also reviewed by Harry L. Carrigan Jr. for The Christian Century.
Flanagan also conducted a creative writing workshop titled “Caroline Gordon’s Top Ten Tips for Writing Fiction” at University of Dallas. She also presented “Subsumed by Paratext: A Study of Caroline Gordon and Flannery O’Connor,” at the 2019 Association of Writers and Writing Programs Conference in Portland, Oregon on Friday, March 29.
