What we're about

Anyone with an interest in G.K. Chesterton and his writings and thought and influence, whether they be a newbie, long time reader or expert.

Our first meeting is May 21st at 7:30 at Dupar’s on 214 S. Lake Ave Pasadena 91101. We will be doing introductions and discussing An Introduction to the Apostle of Common Sense by Dale Ahlquist. I will be posting a pdf soon or will provide it. We will also be discussing Chapter Two of Common Sense 101 By Dale Ahlquist: Wonder (which I will also have available in pdf format). Thanks.

This is a meet up for those who want to explore the writings of the great G.K Chesterton in an atmosphere of serious intellectual discussion and fun camaraderie. Anyone wishing to learn more about Chesterton and those who have been life-long followers, fans and readers, are welcome. We will explore some of his various essays, reviews, writings and books, and his thoughts and ideas on relativism, modernism, and distributism in a relaxed social setting.

Our first meeting will be a general overview of Chesterton and his work and introduction to some of his writing and contributions to culture and debate over the great questions of our time.
