Next Chesterton Meeting on Saturday

Just a reminder that the next meeting of the G.K. Chesterton Society of Ireland will be this Saturday, the 21st November at 1pm in the usual venue of the Central Catholic Library, 74 Merrion Square, Dublin. The text for discussion will be the next three chapters of Heretics, which are: Omar and the Sacred Vine, The Mildness of the Yellow Press, and The Moods of George Moore. As I always say, they are VERY short chapters, you would read all three in one sitting. The text is available online at the link given below.

We also resolved to look out for Chesterton in the news, so if you come across any such mention, perhaps you could take a clipping, a print-out, or just a mental note.

It's free and everybody is welcome. Discussion is always free-ranging, so don't worry if you don't know much about Chesterton.

Here is a link to the text online.

Saturday's Meeting Postponed to July 25th

Dear friends

Unfortunately, we've had to postpone Saturday's meeting. The Central Catholic Library has just learned of a festival happening in their vicinity on Saturday and have decided it's best to stay closed on that day.

We have rescheduled for Saturday 25th of this month, again at twelve p.m, again in the Central Catholic Library. The text for discussion is still the first three chapters of Heretics.

Sorry for the postponement and I hope you can make it on the 25th.

Wit and Wisdom of G.K. Chesterton updated

I've just updated my Wit and Wisdom of G.K. Chesterton site-- an article-by-article journey through Chesterton's thought and works. The articles originally appear in the Open Door magazine. I've tried to make it more navigable, too.

Next Meeting of the Chesterton Society!

The next meeting of the G.K. Chesterton Society will be on Saturday the eleventh of July, at twelve, in the Central Catholic Library as before. (The address is 74 Merrion Square.) I hope you can make it and please feel welcome to invite anyone you know who might be interested.

We are going to start looking at what is perhaps Chesterton's first major work, Heretics. So if possible please read the first three chapters of that book-- they are very short. If you can't get your hands on a physical copy, it's easily available in many places online, including here. They are very short chapters.

If you don't get around to reading it, though, don't hesitate to come along anyway.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

I wrote 'next Sunday' as the day for our brief meeting an hour before the Belloc meeting!

It is actually NEXT SATURDAY!

Everything else is true, though. So, the date is Saturday 6th June. The time is 12:00. And the venue is the Central Catholic Library.

See you there, hopefully.
