The first time Nancy Carpentier Brown read G.K. Chesterton’s work, she didn’t just hate it – she actually burned the book!
But things certainly changed. Nancy now not only works with the American Chesterton Society, she is a leading expert on Frances Chesterton, and a much-requested speaker on both Gilbert and Frances Chesterton.
She’s also the author of The Father Brown Reader I & II, The Chestertons and the Golden Key, and The Woman Who Was Chesterton.
She joined us for this episode to talk about introducing kids Chesterton and his work. But parents – you’ll get lots of great ideas for learning more about Chesterton yourself as well!
Also: I may have possibly read aloud during this episode. And even whipped out my British accent to do it. Maybe. Possibly. ;)
