In this talk, "Chesterton and My Jewish/Catholic Journey," I discuss the need for Chesterton fans to reckon with the author's anti-Semitism. This talk was given July 30, 2021 at the 40th Annual Chesterton Conference, held at the Sheraton Lisle Naperville Hotel in Lisle, Illinois.
I deliver the annual Edith Stein Guild address in the Choir Room of St. Patrick's Cathedral, New York City, on August 3, 2019: "Sponsa Christi: What Edith Stein Taught Me About the Mystery of Spiritual Motherhood." The memoir to which I refer during my talk is Sunday Will Never Be the Same: A Rock and Roll Journalist Opens Her Ears to God.
I speak on "Chastity and Care for the Other," sharing the message of my book The Thrill of the Chaste, Catholic Edition with students at St. Mary's College, South Bend, Indiana, on January 23, 2017.
