In this part two of two, guest Dr. Jessica Hooten Wilson joins the show to discuss truth, goodness, and beauty in literature and examines Flannery O'Connor's approach as found in her "Mystery and Manners" collection of essays and talks.

Show Snippet: "This is a modern problem where I have students come in, and you look at a college student's calendar, and it's as though their identity is wrapped up in their to-do list. And so I always bring up the problem of who has this intrinsic beauty and value and worth without a to-do list, that person doesn't need a to-do list to be meaningful. And literature trains us to be that way towards people by training us to be that way towards literature itself. We let the literature be what it is."
