“Chesterton on ‘The Great War'”

On the third Monday evening of April, with our tax returns having been filed, we shall gather to discuss GKC on the subject of what we know as World Way I.  Lecture 76 at is an excellent overview of the subject and lots of references come up with “Chesterton wwI” on the internet.  From St. Thomas University up in Minnesota you can learn:

“At the beginning of the First World War, Chesterton was among several leading British writers whom Charles Masterman, the head of Britain’s War Propaganda Bureau (WPB), recruited to help shape public opinion.”

Come and join the dissection of his thoughts on the causes and results of the conflagration that reverberates down to our day.  Mark your calendar now!!  And thinking of that: on April 16, 1918 the British House of Commons passed a new Military Service Bill, taking men up to 55 years old.

The above date represents the third Monday of the month and that is our regular meeting with a starting time of 7 PM (but come when you can and leave when you have to go).  We will be found in the downstairs dining area of C. J. Muggs located at 101 W. Lockwood, Webster Groves in the historic Gorlock Building.  The management has been very supportive of our meetings and the wait staff has been exemplary in taking care of us.  We have room to grow so please come and bring a friend/family member/enemy to experience the richness of G. K. Chesterton’s thought.
