September 27th, 2012Travels in New York and New Englandby Joseph Pearce
Tomorrow morning, at the crack of dawn, or actually an hour or two before it, I depart for Buffalo, New York, to speak at a Chesterton Conference, along with my two good Chestertonian friends, Dale Ahlquist, President of the American Chesterton Society, and Kevin O'Brien, Director of the Theatre of the Word Incorporated, the latter of whom will be well known to visitors to the Ink Desk as a blogger extraordinaire. Those interested in attending should contact Philip Viverito: firstname.lastname@example.org
On the following morning, Saturday the 29th, I make the short trip to Rochester, New York, where Dale and I will be speaking at the annual Chesterton Conference at St. John Fisher College. Other speakers at this day-long conference, which runs from 10am to 3pm, will include Christopher Check of Catholic Answers and formerly of the Rockford Institute and the irrepressible Lou Horvath, organizer of this yearly Chestertonian feast. Those wishing to know more should contact Lou: email@example.com
On the following weekend I return to the North-East to give my own personal conversion story at 6:30pm on Saturday, October 6th at Our Lady of Fatima Parish in New London, NH. Those wishing to attend should contact the parish directly. On the following day, I will be leading a local book discussion group at Mount Royal Academy in Sunapee, NH, on the topic of C. S. Lewis's Great Divorce. Contact Mount Royal Academy directly for details.
During the proceeding week of October 8th to 12th I'll be at Thomas More College in Merrimack, NH, commencing with the Open House on Monday, October 8th, continuing with the teaching of a sophomore class on Mediaeval Saints, and culminating in the Traditio discussion with President Fahey and the entire student body on the topic of the poetry of faith. (See today's other Ink Desk post for further details about the regular Traditio discussions at Thomas More College.)
On my travels I will do my best to keep writing for the Ink Desk and am sure that my associates will be writing regularly in my absence.
