Capturing The Imagination:
GK Chesterton & Culture Seminar & Anniversary Dinner
Saturday 2nd December, 2006

To mark the 70th Anniversary of Chesterton’s death, to promote the Library’s Chesterton collection and to remind ourselves of the importance of evangelizing the imagination of our own age, the Caroline Chisholm Library is hosting what will be an absorbing and lively Seminar and Dinner .

The Library particularly flourished as a cultural center during a high point in Gilbert Keith Chesterton’s publishing life and the Catholic literary revival. Both the Library and Chesterton’s legacy are devoted to the apostolate of nourishing people’s imaginations and lives with the deep truths of common sense and the Faith.

    How amazing! I was only thinking of GKC’s anniversary this morning and wondering if I’d missed it!

    Clara sent me this link. I’d love to come over for the event, but unfortunately, I think I’m all booked up this weekend.

    We’ll see…

    Great to have you visiting my blog, Louise. Come back often! I hope you can get to the Chesterton event–I can’t, as I have other things happening which is a real bummer.
