Keep Toronto Reading 2011: Flannery O’Connor’s Wise Blood

The Toronto Public Library is smack in the middle of Keep Toronto Reading 2011, a month-long series of readings, events, and activities aimed at celebrating books across the city. In conjunction with the TPL festival, Jen Knoch of the Keepin’ It Real Book Club has been hosting a series of videos featuring bookish types recommending titles that have had transformative effects on their lives. I was invited to participate, and contributed a short video about one of the few books that I reread regularly: Flannery O’Connor’s corrosive and iconoclastic first novel, Wise Blood.
