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!

Greetings, Bay Area Chestertonians!
We will meet up on the first Wednesday of the month, November 7th, at 7:00 PM at Country Gourmet in Sunnyvale. This month’s story is “The Red Moon of Meru,” from G. K. Chesterton’s Father Brown of the Church of Rome, published by Ignatius Press. As this month’s reading selection is a bit short, 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.
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:
December: The Miracle of Moon Crescent
January: 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
