The St. Louis Chesterton Society presents:  “Education in a Miseducated World”, an education conference designed to explore the purpose of Christian education.  World renowned Chesterton scholar and speaker, and President of the Society of GK Chesterton, Dale Ahlquist, will keynote the event with an address on “Truth, Beauty and Goodness.”  Local favorite, actor Kevin O’Brien (Upstage Productions & Theater of the Word, Inc.), will present “Shakespeare and the Internet”.  Other conference speakers include Kenneth Colston, Andrew Daub, Fr Voltz, and Maureen Wittmann.  

Gilbert Keith Chesterton, (29 May 1874 – 14 June 1936), was a British writer, poet, philosopher, dramatist, journalist, orator, biographer, and literary and art critic. There is an investigation currently pending into opening a cause for his canonization. Chesterton, a convert himself, inspired many others to convert to Christianity, including the great Christian author, CS Lewis. Chesterton had something to say about almost everything, including education. Through the lens of Chesterton’s writings, we will examine the purpose of education and what we can do to provide the very best education for those in the St Louis area.

Cost is $35, adults, $15 Student, $60 max per family in advance.  Limited babysitting available with pre-registration. Box lunches available with pre-registration.  Register at:
