  • SASFX BOOK CLUB  (formerly the SFX Book Club)

Please join us on Sunday, January 24th when we'll discuss A Prayer Journal, by Flannery O’Connor, and “Revelation,” a short story by O’Connor (from the collection Everything That Rises Must Converge). Written while O'Connor was a college student and recently discovered, A Prayer Journal is a rare insight into her interior life. "Revelation" is available online so you don't have to get the whole collection to just read this story.
