SALEM — Books at the dinner table are OK at this event. St. Joseph Church delves into the work of G.K. Chesterton during a special dinner at 6 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 9.
At the sixth annual dinner, visitors will dine on steak and sip wine while listening to guest speaker Father Ian Boyd, a Chesterton scholar and author of “The Novels of G.K. Chesterton (London 1975).”
Chesterton (1874-1936) was an English writer, lay theologian, literary and art critic, and Christian apologist. Just last month, a bishop in England’s Diocese of Northampton announced he has taken the first step to open an investigation into whether the writer should be declared a saint.
Father Boyd is founder and editor of The Chesterton Review and the president of the G.K. Chesterton Institute for Faith and Culture based at Seton Hall University. He is a priest of the Congregation of St. Basil.
