Hello Chestertonians!
Don’t forget that there have been a few recent changes–
  • Meetings will be held the second Monday of each month, 7-9 PM, at the Country Gourmet in Sunnyvale
  • Our “basic” book for the foreseeable future will be In Defense of Sanity
  • Typical reading will include one or more essays from In Defense of Sanity, plus additional materials– a book of particular interest, articles on specific topics like GKC’s literary criticism, etc…
For March, we’ll be discussing the fifth and sixth essays from In Defense of Sanity. These essays are entitled A Piece of Chalk and What I Found in My Pocket.  Physical paper copies of the book are strongly encouraged so we can literally all be “on the same page,” as this greatly facilitates the conversation.  We will also briefly dip our toes into the waters of Distributism, with this introductory essay in a series from the online journal Ethika Politika.  IF this proves to be a sufficient interest to attendees, we may work our way through the series over the next several months.  Please bring a paper or electronic copy of the essay to the meeting if you can.
Finally, please help us spread the word about our little group.  Invite a friend, forward this email to a few acquaintances, put a posting up on a community forum, share on Facebook.  
See you March 9!

For February, we’ll be discussing the third and fourth essays from In Defense of Sanity.  These essays are entitled On Certain Modern Writers and the Institution of the Family and On Running After One’s Hat.  Physical paper copies of the book are strongly encouraged so we can literally all be “on the same page,” as this greatly facilitates the conversation.  Please bring along your thoughts and suggestions for additional reading for March– is there a particular book you’d like to read?  A topic you’d like to examine in greater depth?  I’ve found an interesting-looking essay series on Distributism, so I’ll bring along a few copies of the first installment to see what people think.
Finally, please help us spread the word about our little group.  Invite a friend, forward this email to a few acquaintances, put a posting up on a community forum, share on Facebook.  
See you February 9!
