The Devil Went Down To Georgia: Flannery O'Connor And The Religion Of Me, Myself, And I.

  • West Feliciana Court House 4789 Prosperity Street Saint Francisville, LA, 70775 United States (map)

The modern age is one of self-worship, says Jessica Hooten Wilson, putting us in thrall to a false idol and a pseudo-religious vision that leaves us blind to the human condition. In her fiction, Flannery O'Connor, the self-described "Hillbilly Thomist," fought hard for the Real and the True. Wilson explores O'Connor's anti-modern iconoclasm, and the lessons O'Connor has to teach readers struggling to make sense of contemporary problems.                              Presented by Jessica Hooten Wilson.
