ART FOR A NEW GENERATION
Bring Renowned Writer Flannery O’Connor to Film and Television
"What we lost when she died is bitter. What we have is astonishing: the stories burn brighter than ever, and strike deeper."
- Walter Clemons, Newsweek
Flannery O'Connor was a great writer with deep Catholic faith. She was a storyteller of tremendous power - winner of the National Book Award, included on TIme magazine's all-time best 100 novels, included on Esquire's list of 75 greatest women of all-time, winner of the National Book Foundation's poll of the best of the best National Book Award winners. She created stories that fascinate and engage Catholics, Orthodox, and Protestants, as well as many non-Christians. She is a superb example of a writer with the rare ability to reach the world as well as the Church.
