Chesterton Lecture

News from our neighbors--the Mahoning Valley Chesterton Societe:
Hello friends,

I have attached a flyer for the September 17th lecture by historian Pat Lally. You are all welcome to attend this event. The lecture will be preceded by a social, so I am hoping some members of local/regional Chesterton Societies will be able to meet each other.

The Ignatius Press edition of Lepanto, which features notes and explanatory essays, will be available for purchase for $10. Our Society will be reading and discussing the poem for our October 15th meeting.

Please feel free to send the flyer around to anyone that might be interested.


Thank you!

Hope to see you there!
