Come to a Night of Appreciation, Emulation, Infiltration, Obfuscation and Literary Discussion

Think of a British Christian version of the Superfriends, and you've got a--well, a not entirely accurate idea of the Inklings. JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis, Charles Williams, and their friends used to meet, semi-weekly, at a pub in Oxford called the Eagle and Child, where they'd read bits from their works in progress, drink beer, and talk about everything in the world. This upcoming Tuesday, there will be a gathering at Packards in their honor. RSVP to, or just show up. Everyone welcome.

Topics to be covered may (or may not) include:

Aquinas, Beekeeping, Chesterton, Distributism, Elves, the Fall of Man, Grace, Homebrewing, Irenaeus, Jacobitism, Kant, Lions, Mythopoeia, Natural Law, Organic Farming, the Person from Porlock, Quixotic Enterprises, the Romance of Lost Causes, Sherbet, the Trivium, Unusually Good Coffee, Virtue, Walter Scott, the X-Men, Yentas, and Zoological Gardens

Tuesday, February 13, 7:30 p.m.
(in the back room called the Library)
Masonic Street, Northampton, Massachusetts

Sorry, but I must work today at Big Lots. While skipping the scheduled workday would be Distributist in spirit, as my post suggested I'm quite the capitalist, and I cannot the Packard's event, although it seems right up my alley.
Don't feel abandoned; I had to do the same to my own NHS Republicans' Club last Saturday when the club recorded for a future broadcast on Valley Free Radio. Despite that I founded the club, I couldn't go because of my work schedule.
Secondly, I've even had to schedule a date with a good Christian junior girl around my work week, and believe me, it's made things difficult, even though I work just 15 hours this week!
