A Three-Month Sojourn Up Notting Hill

We devote our July, August and September meetings to Chesterton’s 1904 novel, The Napoleon of Notting Hill, A Fantasy of the Future, which speculation says may have inspired Michael Collins and his movement for Irish independence.

Join us on Thursday, July 3rd, 7 o’clock tumblr_mayl66JiKc1ql2w65o1_1280in the evening at a local Chestertonian homestead* for our first installment of Napoleon, all of Book I and Chapters 1 & 2 of Book II.
