On Thursday evening, June 13, Gesu’s Book Club will begin our discussion of Dorothy Day’s autobiography The Long Loneliness. Dorothy is one of the two Americans closest to canonization, along with Bishop Fulton Sheen. We will gather in the Ignatius Library of the Madonna della Strada Pastoral Center at 7:30 pm.
– “Fascinating as personal history, important as a document in twentieth-century American social history,” (New York Times Book Review).
– “Dorothy Day wanted to be good, and not just do good. . . . a fascinating memoir,” (David Brooks in the New York Times).
-A compelling autobiographical testament to the spiritual pilgrimage of a woman who, in her own words, dedicated herself “to bring[ing] about the kind of society where it is easier to be good,’’ (From the Publisher).
