Amy is a fine writer and has borne great suffering with grace. I’m honored to know her. And I’m told O’Connor and Benedict are apparently handy with a pen too.
I wanted to let you know that we have a new Dappled Things available online. Of particular interest to you and your readers might be the interview with Amy Welborn about the memoir she just published with Doubleday about the trip to Italy she took with her children following the sudden death of her husband.
Also, you will probably enjoy this article from Fr. Damian Ference about the deep link between Flannery O’Connor and Benedict XVI, titled “No Vague Believer”.
