Greetings, Bay Area Chestertonians!

We will meet up on the first Wednesday of the month, December 5th, at 7:00 PM at Country Gourmet in Sunnyvale.  This month’s story is “The Miracle of Moon Crescent,” from G. K. Chesterton’s Father Brown of the Church of Rome, published by Ignatius Press.  The story can also be read online.  If you’re feeling particularly inspired, please feel free to bring an additional bit of Chesterton with you to share with the group, anything from a brief quip to a paragraph or stanza.  Last month we veered off into a great little digression about a song from Mumford & Sons which seemed to have been inspired by GKC.

Normally we meet on the first Wednesday of every month at Country Gourmet. New members are always welcome, with no need to call or RSVP in advance.  Reading the selection ahead of time, and bringing a copy with you are helpful, but not required.

Attendees are asked to contribute $1 in monthly dues, which are being saved to eventually bring in a speaker.  If you’ve never eaten at Country Gourmet before, be aware that you place your order up at the front counter, and the staff will bring your food to your table.  So please step up and order upon arrival, then join us at the table.

Our planned reading through the rest of the book are as follows:

January 2013: The Resurrection of Father Brown

February: The Man with Two Beards

March: The Curse of the Golden Cross

April: The Secret Garden

May: The Flying Stars

June: The Honour of Israel Gow

July: The Insoluble Problem
