Six evenings each academic year, the Seattle G. K. Chesterton Society welcomes all college students and interested adults to join us in ongoing conversation on topics of the moment, guided by the light of the Christian intellectual tradition, in the spirit of G. K. Chesterton.
Each evening features an engaging presentation by an invited speaker, an extended period of lively discussion, and the opportunity to continue the conversation and make new friends over snacks and refreshments.
Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874-1936) was an English essayist, playwright, mystery writer, literary critic, journalist, and convert to Catholicism who addressed the important questions of his day with boldness and wit. In the spirit of Chesterton, our evenings of discussion and fellowship aim to provide a witness to Catholic Christianity’s passion for truth and engagement with the world.
There is never any fee for admission, nor requests for donations. We simply invite you to step through the open doorway of our kind host, the Catholic Newman Center at the University of Washington, for an evening of stimulating discussion and conviviality.
