Over the weekend I had the privilege of hearing Dale Ahlquist, president of the American Chesterton Society, give a presentation on G. K. Chesterton. His presentation was followed by dramatist Chuck Chalberg, who performed a monologue and was endearing and believable as Chesterton.
Dale Ahlquist signed my copy of "Common Sense 101:Lessons from G.K. Chesterton", which I bought from Amazon a couple of weeks ago.
After listening to Dale Ahlquist speak about the influence Chesterton had on his own life as well as the influence Chesterton had on so many significant people (C. S. Lewis to name just one), I was left wondering how I have managed to come this far in life without having read anything by G. K. Chesterton.
I plan to correct that omission and finally start reading Chesterton soon. I have a copy of "Orthodoxy" at home which I want to read once I finish "The Boys in the Boat". Then hopefully I'll get to "Common Sense 101."
