The United States Postal Office is going Southern Gothic next month with a new Flannery O’Connor stamp. The stamp will be the 30th entry in the USPS’s Literary Arts series. Past entries have included Herman Melville, Dorothy Parker, F. Scott Fitzgerald, James Baldwin, and many more literary luminaries from American letters. The “three ounce” label means the stamp is worth 93¢, or the rate of a three-ounce mailing. The stamp will debut 5th at the Napex stamp show in McLean, Virginia.
