Chesterton! I don’t know where my brain is this morning. Nancy JUST mentioned that book in a comment to the Dickens piece I posted the other day. It’s the 100th anniversary of the book, she said. And I looove Chesterton. OK, there’s a fun assignment for my new year…Thanks, both of you.
And I was just going to apologize because I didn’t see Nancy’s post until after I wrote the above post. Another happy mistake I guess.
By the way, I think Nancy and I will both be attending the conference. It’s my 12 year old who wants to go so badly. She LOVES Chesterton and is in the process of memorizing the Ballad of the White Horse. I’ll have to do a little brushing up on Dickens (and hope to read the biography as well) since I haven’t read anything except A Christmas Carol since high school. It’s funny because A Tale of Two Cities is a favorite from high school – I wrote a college entrance essay on it. But my husband hated it – he found it extremely tedious in high school. I chalk it up to the difference between relaxed homeschooling and the very rigorous classical academy my husband attended.
