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!)
The Conference is always a great time, and this year is going to be the best yet! The CEO of the Babylon Bee, Seth Dillon, joins a host of other great speakers including favorites like Joseph Pearce and Chuck Chalberg, not to mention ACS President Dale Ahlquist! You definitely won't want to miss it. And if you can't make it in person (though, really, you should try if you can!), you can attend the conference virtually!
Register for the Conference!
Psst! If you're not on our mailing list yet, sign up first, and you'll get a discount code for the conference sent right to your inbox!
Even more insistent Psst! Ok, we still want you to sign up for our mailing list, and we'd love to offer you our discount code for attendance to the in-person conference. BUT... if you think you'll only be able to attend the conference virtually, then we'd suggest you sign up to be a member of the Society for Gilbert Keith Chesterton! Because not only will you get great member benefits such as your own copy of Gilbert! magazine, discounts on books and merchandise, invitations to exclusive events, and so forth: but you'll also be able to attend this year's conference virtually FOR FREE!
We hope you'll make it to the conference at least online! And we hope you'll stay tuned for our own local meetings announcements which will be coming soon!
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.
