After a terrible 18 months or so, during which our Society was only able to meet intermittently, and often only digitally at that, we are pleased to announce that we are coming back! We will resume our regular in-person meetings in August. AND, you may notice, we're sporting a new brand! We'll continue to serve the whole Southeast PA region, and anyone from Jersey or Delaware, or really anywhere—but we've decided to embrace what everyone calls us anyway, and officially become the Philly Chesterton Society! We can't wait to get together again and see everyone...
In the meantime, we're encouraging our members to get their Chesterton fix by participating in the offerings of the Society for Gilbert Keith Chesterton, especially their upcoming Conference! You can download the brochure here, and even register for the conference below. (Note: Our society members can get a special discount using a code that was sent to the email list. If you'd like to get the discount code, sign up today!)
Join the Society for our first meeting in a long while, on November 15th, at Ivy Hall, beginning at 7:00 PM, to discuss Chesterton's unique inter-weaved series of short novellas, Four Faultless Felons (1930).
You can purchase a copy of this book in paperback from the Society of Gilbert Keith Chesterton. Alternatively, the book is available from Amazon in Kindle e-book, paperback, and hardcover formats; and free online via Project Gutenberg, as well.
Join the Society for our May 2020 (Virtual) Meeting, when we will discuss the final ten chapters of Chesterton's book, Heretics, the prequel (as it were) to Orthodoxy. See below for information on how to join this virtual meeting. All are welcome - which means even folks outside our geographical area are invited to "attend" and join the discussion!
Join the Society for our April 2020 (Virtual) Meeting, when we will discuss the first ten chapters of Chesterton's book, Heretics, the prequel (as it were) to Orthodoxy. See below for information on how to join this virtual meeting. All are welcome - which means even folks outside our geographical area are invited to "attend" and join the discussion!
In an abundance of caution, in view of the circumstances of the spreading risk of the coronavirus pandemic, the society will be suspending our in-person meetings indefinitely, until the situation changes. However, we will not be giving up on meeting altogether - we're going to go virtual!
We aim to provide fellowship and fun in the Philadelphia area as we gather and honor the personal and literary legacy of G.K. Chesterton.
