Announcing our September 17, 2023 meeting and reading!
Join the Society on September 17th at 6:00 PM at Ivy Hall to discuss Chesterton on Chaucer!
Chesterton's book on Chaucer can be purchased in the Collected Works Volume 18 or separately online (just Google search).
A useful introduction by Dale Ahlquist can be found here. As Dale writes, "Chesterton’s book on Chaucer is a lesson in history, theology, literature and art. It also a tribute from one great humorist to another. When Chesterton writes about writing, he is exquisite."

Join the Society on July 16th at 6:00 PM at Ivy Hall to discuss Chesterton on Shakespeare! For this meeting, we will be reading and discussing the compilation of Chesterton's insights on Shakespeare put together by Dale Ahlquist in The Soul of Wit.
The book can be purchased from the Society of GK Chesterton, but is also available from other fine book retailers (we mean 'fine' here in the sense of, 'just okay but not really desirable,' like, 'I see you scheduled a meeting at 8 AM on Monday; that's fine.') Pick yourself up a copy and join us for what promises to be a great conversation! Bring a friend!
