Maple at Latter Book Club: “A Good Man is Hard to Find”

The Maple At Latter Book Club will meet at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 10, at Latter Library (5120 St. Charles) to discuss Flannery O’Connor’s short story, “A Good Man Is Hard To Find.”

“A Good Man Is Hard to Find” is Flannery O’Connor’s most famous and most discussed story. O’Connor herself singled it out by making it the title piece of her first collection and the story she most often chose for readings or talks to students. It is an unforgettable tale, both riveting and comic, of the confrontation of a family with violence and sudden death. More than anything else O’Connor ever wrote, this story mixes the comedy, violence, and religious concerns that characterize her fiction.
