Greetings Chestertonians!

We are currently working our way through “In Defense of Sanity,” which is a fairly recent anthology of essays spanning most of Chesterton’s writing career.  July readings are as follows:

32. Turning Inside Out (Fancies vs. Fads, 1923)

33. On Turnpikes and Mediævalism (All I Survey, 1933)
34. The Drift from Domesticity (The Thing, 1929) 
 If you aren’t currently receiving our emails, please join our list to stay informed of upcoming meetings and events by going here.  You can also like our Facebook page and see updates there.
The location is Mimi’s Cafe in San Jose, in the El Paseo de Saratoga shopping center, at the corner of Saratoga and Campbell Avenues.  If you let the greeters at the front know you’re there for a book club meeting they will direct you to our table.

Greetings Chesterton lovers!

We will meet up the first Wednesday of the month, December 3, at 7:00 PM at Country Gourmet in Sunnyvale.  We will be reading and discussing the Father Brown mystery, “The Flying Stars.”  Numerous sites have the story available, including a PDF file here.

Please come prepared to share a brief “book report” or proposal or whatever on what YOU would like to be the upcoming reading for the group.  Specific edition information, pricing, availability, etc would be helpful.
Gather your thoughts on the possibility of moving meetings to MONDAYS starting in the new year.

New members are always welcome.  Please leave a quick comment in the box if you might come so we get a large enough table.

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 step up and order upon arrival, then come on over to the table!
