WOODSTOCK, GA (November 6, 2012) - EVENT: Author Dale Ahlquist, President of the American Chesterton Society, will host a live Web event to discuss and field questions about his new book, The Complete Thinker.

WHEN: 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2012.

WHERE: Online at RSVPs encouraged.

FORMAT: Ahlquist will open with general comments about the book and his reasons for writing it, then will take questions from participants through the website, Facebook and Twitter.

Why do people consider Chesterton a "complete thinker?"
What sets Chesterton apart from other writers of his generation?
How is it that he was able to write about so many different things?
What are the valid criticisms of Chesterton's body of work?

Ahlquist leads readers on a tour of Chesterton's works - and thoughts. He masterfully combines Chesterton's works with his own analysis to show how and why Chesterton was, indeed, THE COMPLETE THINKER.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Dale Ahlquist is the president and co-founder of the American Chesterton Society, and co-founder of the Chesterton Academy - a high school in Minneapolis, Minn. He also serves as chairman of the annual G. K. Chesterton Conference at the University of St. Thomas (St. Paul, Minn.). He is perhaps best known for creating and hosting the EWTN television series: "G. K. Chesterton: The Apostle of Common Sense." The first episodes aired in 2000-2001. Ahlquist is one of the most respected Chesterton scholars in the world. His other books on the beloved 20th-century Catholic literary giant include Common Sense 101: Lesson from G.K. Chesterton (Ignatius Press); G.K. Chesterton: The Apostle of Common Sense- a bestseller (Ignatius Press); Lepanto (Ignatius Press); and In Defense of Sanctity: The Best Essays of G.K. Chesterton.
