“The Autobiography of GKC: Chapters X – XII & Chapters VII – IX Redux “
Way back in April we talked about the demise of G. K. Chesterton and in September we will continue our look at the life of the man, as recounted in the most extraordinary autobiography I have ever read: it may not be the best I’ve every read (see Witness by Chambers, Memoirs by Grant) but it is extraordinary!!! The title of Chapter 7 “The Crime of Orthodoxy ” should bring a smile to your face!!! Since discussion time in August for Chapters 7 – 9 was truncated, we can also bring those into discussion! The book is available on the web and available at http://www.chesterton.org and since you are a member of the American Chesterton Society (you are, aren’t you?) you get a discount.
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.
