O’Connor has found her place

flannery oconnor stampWASHINGTON (press release)—Flannery O’Connor’s harsh and painful depiction of the human spirit’s journey to grace may have shocked audiences of her time, but her place as one of America’s great authors is sealed. The U.S. Postal Service announced that O’Connor will be the latest addition in the forever stamp collection with her signature peacock feathers flanking her portrait.

A Georgia native and devout Roman Catholic, O’Connor is best known for her grippingly honest tales of the religious enlightenment, such as “A Good Man is Hard to Find,” a story about a family who encounters trouble on their way to a vacation home exhibits grace even in the darkest situation.
