Lecture: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Flannery O’Connor - The Politics of Catholic Fiction Today


Location: 138 DeBartolo Hall

The Notre Dame Institute for Advanced Study is pleased to announce a lecture offered by Randy Boyagoda from the University of Toronto. 

In this lecture, Professor Boyagoda will draw upon his current work, a novel addressing the question of how to live out one’s faith in the world as it is today, as he explores the challenges and opportunities related to writing fiction as both a committed Catholic and a serious writer. Professor Boyagoda will also address the combined burden and ambition to write “beyond Flannery O’Connor” and the challenge to read beyond the same.
