Randy Boyagoda, a Catholic writer and professor of English at the University of Toronto, will discuss the challenges of trying to write religiously serious fiction today, when the terms for doing so are often overdetermined by the outsized influence and popularity of writers like Flannery O’Connor and Marilynn Robinson. After diagnosing this situation and the various reasons for it, Boyagoda will then read a preview from his forthcoming novel, "Original Prin." One of the Deitchman Family Lectures on Religion and Modernity.
