Join us for our next meeting on June 11th, where we will be revisiting a work we've read before (back in 2015) - Chesterton's highly original novel, Manalive!

You can read the book online here.
We aim to provide fellowship and fun in the Philadelphia area as we gather and honor the personal and literary legacy of G.K. Chesterton.
