Ever Eden: By Women, For the Church

Adding to our series “On My Bookshelf” is a brand new literary journal for Catholics, Ever Eden Literary Journal. Curated, created, and written entirely by women, the Ever Eden Literary Journal is an absolutely delightful addition to the rich tradition of storytelling in the written word in the Catholic tradition.

In our episode today, we speak with Amy O’Connell, Ever Eden’s co-founder and creator. We talk about the necessity of women writers in the Catholic tradition, how important it is to be reading in our daily lives, and how Ever Eden can be a stepping stone for the new Flannerys in our Catholic subculture.
