Rock Island, The Quad Cities Chesterton Society is inviting anyone interested in knowing more about GK Chesterton or about the local Chesterton Society to its next meeting, Tuesday, March 3rd, 7 pm, at Trinity Church, 1818 6th Ave, Rock Island.

The group will hear and discuss a recorded presentation by Dr. William Oddie called, "Authority and the Adventurer: Landmarks on the Road to Orthodoxy," delivered at the annual Chesterton conference in St. Paul on June 14th, 2008.

Dr. Oddie just released what many consider to be the finest scholarly biography of Chesterton"s early years, "Chesterton and the Romance of Orthodoxy: The Making of GK Chesterton, 1874-1908." He is a former editor of The Catholic Herald and author of numerous books on literary and theological themes.

The Quad Cities Chesterton Society was organized in the summer of 2008 to explore and discuss the writings of famed English author and Catholic apologist, GK Chesterton. The group recently finished reading and discussing Chesterton"s brilliant biographical sketch of St. Thomas Aquinas. Anyone interested in Chesterton is welcome to join. There are no dues.
