O. Henry: Austin’s Storyteller and America’s Spirit

Shoshana Milgram

Presented at: OCON 2021

Date: Aug 30, 2021

“More than any other author,” Ayn Rand wrote, O. Henry represents “the expectation of finding something wonderful around all of life’s corners.”  He became world-famous for his ingenious plot twists, exuberant wordplay, and cheerful benevolence. It all began, in fact, in Austin—where he lived, loved, worked, and first expressed his glowing literary universe. (No advance reading required.)
