DOROTHY DAY. The Dorothy Day Book, 1982. Dorothy Day was devoted to the simple pleasures of life: coffee, the opera on the radio, newspapers, and most of all, books: "Lord did she read! Along with Pascal, Berdaev, Tolstoy and Chesterton, she read the lives of the saints, literary gossip, Berlitz language courses, Murray Kempton, Dickens, Henry Miller, D.H. Lawrence, garden columns and, apparently, any travel book she could get her hands on." #dorothyday #catholic #bookstagram #booksofourfathers #catholicbooks #catholicspirituality #catholiclit #catholicamerica #adebethune #librorumhelluo #atthesignofthestar #greatgiftbook #giftbooks

Thomas Merton. Seeds of Contemplation, 1949. "LET US THROW OFF THE PIECES OF THE WORLD LIKE CLOTHING AND ENTER NAKED INTO WISDOM" Original burlap binding on Merton's meditations, published by James Laughlin's New Directions. Merton mentioned it in his diary on March 6, 1949: "Yesterday Seeds of Contemplation arrived and it is handsome. I can hardly keep my hands off it. Laughlin says the burlap effect on the binding is a material they are using right now in night clubs for wall covering." (The Sign of Jonas). #contemplation #catholic #collectingcatholicbooks #thomasmerton #booksofourfathers #bookstagram #keeperofbooks #catholiclit

"NINE STORIES ABOUT ORIGINAL SIN. WITH MY COMPLIMENTS"
Flannery O'Connor. A Good Man is Hard to Find, 1955. Flannery dedicated the book to Robert and Sally Fitzgerald. In March 1949, Robert Lowell introduced Flannery to the Fitzgerald's in NYC: "The Fitzgerald's later recalled the day vividly: O'Connor in a peacoat and brown corduroys and speaking in a strong accent ; Lowell's eyes shining-he was 'shooting sparks in every direction.'" (Paul Elie, The Life You Save May Be Your Own). #staroftheseabooks #flanneryoconnor #finebooks #firstedition

Gilbert Keith Chesterton. Orthodoxy, 1909.
A quick look at the finest first edition of Orthodoxy I've ever handled (before it ships to the buyer). "Orthodoxy was Chesterton's first explicitly Christian title and his biographer, Maisie Ward, considered it so important that 'more must be said about it than his other published works'" (Joseph Pearce, Literary Converts). #genieduchristianisme #convert #gkchesterton #bookstagram #gilbertkeithchesterton #firstedition

Flannery O’Connor is known best for her disturbing short stories. A devout Catholic, southern woman, O’Connor writes characters that are gritty, haunting, and bizarre while also beautiful and filled with grace. This publication includes her 31 short stories, the most famous of which are A Good Man is Hard to Find and Judgment Day. Everyone should read at least one of these stories if they can. #rdhs #books #bookstagram #book #bookworm #bookclub #booklover #bookblogger #bookblog #bookphotography #bookoftheday #library #librarian #librariesofinstagram #flanneryoconnor #catholic #grace #religious #catholicbooks #catholiclit #gothic #shortstory #shortstories #americansouth #south #southerngothic #faulkner #oconnor #agoodmanishardtofind #americanlit

Tonight through Saturday, we are at @FordhamUniversity's #FordhamLincolnCenter campus (next door to our mother church, Church of #StPaultheApostle) for the @fordhamcurrancenter's conference "The Future of the #CatholicLiteraryImagination." The conference is looking at the question: Who are today's great #Catholic writers? What does it mean to be a "Catholic writer" anyway?
