EVENT: Author Dale Ahlquist, President of the American Chesterton Society, will host a live Web event to discuss and field questions about his new book, The Complete Thinker: The Marvelous Mind of G.K. Chesterton.
WHEN: 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2012.
WHERE: Online at www.LiveStream.com/IgnatiusPress. RSVPs encouraged.
FORMAT: Ahlquist will open with general comments about the book and his reasons for writing it, then will take questions from participants through the website, Facebook and Twitter.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
- Why do people consider Chesterton a “complete thinker?”
- What sets Chesterton apart from other writers of his generation?
- How is it that he was able to write about so many different things?
- What are the valid criticisms of Chesterton’s body of work?
Ahlquist leads readers on a tour of Chesterton’s works – and thoughts. He masterfully combines Chesterton’s works with his own analysis to show how and why Chesterton was, indeed, THE COMPLETE THINKER.
