The Chesterton Society of Atlanta

Resources for GKC books we've read and discussed in the past


On August 31, 2005 we read aloud and discussed Chesterton's 143-line narrative poem Lepanto.

Lepanto can be also found in several collections of Chesterton's poems.

From October 2005 to May 2006, we discussed The Everlasting Man, Chesterton's popular history of the world from a Christian perspective.

From June 2006 to June 2007 we discussed What's Wrong with the World.

In late 2007 we read and discussed the greater part of Chesterton's madcap philosophical novel Manalive. We lost access to our meeting place and after some unsuccessful attempts to find another, went on hiatus for a couple of years.

If you order from the American Chesterton Society, mention that you are a member of the Chesterton Society of Atlanta to get 20% off book purchases. (Their member prices are in some cases lower than Amazon's discounted prices for the same books.) If you actually join the American Chesterton Society, of course, you'll get Gilbert! magazine and other perks besides the discount on book purchases. By paying membership dues, or just buying books from them, you also support their Chestertonian research, including making Chesterton's lost works available as etexts.
