Flannery O'Connor was born 88 years ago today. While I wasn't a big fan of her stories when I was in college many years ago, I've come to appreciate several of them as I've matured. I still need to read more before I can say I'm a fan of all her stories but I loved the massive volume of her letters. In honor of her birthday, I think I should pull my copy of The Habit of Being off the shelf and re-read a few of her letters. If you're interested in learning more about her, you might want to start here: Comforts of Home: the Flannery O'Connor Repository.
I'm not sure where to put this blog or how to classify it. This blogger is a daughter of a friend and while I'm pretty sure she's a Christian, it isn't a Christian blog, or books & reading or letter writing & mail art. It's basically about their travels so I'm putting it here for now: Jen's blog: 3toGo
