Social activist and journalist Dorothy Day is most noted for her role in launching the Catholic Worker movement in the 1930s, but her entire life was devoted to fighting against the injustices of inequality and war. Her outstanding faith and work on behalf of the poor have been highlighted by multiple popes, including Pope Francis in his recent speech to Congress.
Day’s granddaughter, Kate Hennessy, has sketched a loving portrait of Day’s inspiring life in her recent memoir, Dorothy Day: The World Will Be Saved by Beauty. (For a taste of what’s in store, visit this Publisher’s Weeklyinterview.) Plan to attend to hear Hennessy’s insights into the book as well as stories about growing up with her grandmother.
If you are unable to attend this book talk, Kate Hennessy is also making an appearance February 21, 2:00 p.m., at Alverno College. Contact the college for more information.
Free and open to all, but RSPV is required.>> RSVP NOW.
