Join the Philadelphia Chesterton Society on Sunday, October 23rd as we revisit one of Chesterton's most celebrated works, The Man Who Was Thursday: A Nightmare. This is an easy-to-find work in various formats, though we recommend the Ignatius Press edition available from the Society of Gilbert Keith Chesterton online store.
This is a re-reading for the Society, though the last time was way back in October 2014. This is a story that bears revisiting, as it is commonly thought to be one of Chesterton's most cryptic works of fiction. It's also a great read for this time of year, as light and darkness seem to begin battling for ascendency, since this is really, as Dale Ahlquist calls it, Chesterton's "cosmic" detective story. This would be a perfect meeting for newcomers to Chesterton — so do try and come, if you've never joined us before, or bring a friend along with you if you're an old hand!
