The Chesterton Cure
Antidote to the Modern Dilemma
july 31 & August 1, 2020 - ONLINE!
Two evenings of intellectual stimulation, spiritual edification, fellowship & fun!
We have made the painful but not unexpected decision to postpone this year’s Chesterton Conference in Chicago to 2021. But we still plan to gather - virtually - for a conference this year. If you have never attended a Chesterton conference before, here is the simplest and best opportunity you've ever had!
Dale Ahlquist will host us online July 31 and August 1 for an electronic dose of Chestertonian joy. Gather with your friends and family for our first-ever virtual conference, featuring two lively talks each night, followed by Q&A, plus legendary afterglows. Don't miss the best virtual event of the summer!
The Saint is the medicine because he is an antidote.
