Read Aloud Revival Podcast!

I had a totally fun and awesomely inspiring time with Sarah Mackenzie of Read Aloud Revival doing a podcast about Chesterton and kids and reading aloud--all my favorite subjects!

Read-Aloud Revival with Sarah Mackenzie


  1. I really enjoyed the podcast! I have successfully read *some* Chesterton - your first Fr. Brown Reader and some of Orthodoxy, but haven't gotten much beyond that. Today at a library sale I found a biography on Chesterton by Dudley Barker, as well as a book by Mr. Chesteron on Chaucer. Do you have any feedback on these, particularly the biography? I wasn't able to find much online on the bio.

    Thank you!

  2. The biography by Dudley Barker will give you a good idea of Chesterton, and his book on Chaucer is good if you are familiar with Chaucer. The Barker is old, and not quite as reliable as some of the other biographies (for example, he repeats the lies Chesterton's sister-in-law wrote in her book about the Chestertons), but it would be a fine start if you haven't read any biography. The best one, in my opinion is Joseph Pearce's, but also Ian Ker's is very good, as well as William Oddie's and Maisie Ward's. Happy Reading!

  3. We loved this Podcast with RAR! We were driving to the library to pick up books and by the time we arrived, I was inquiring about the readers. Unfortunately there were no books in all of our large county library branches. I guess we'll have to search online. We are visitors to this website by the way.

    1. Thanks, Jan! Some libraries have request forms where you can ask them to purchase new books (ours does and I use it often!)--maybe you can try that. I hope you like them and thanks for visiting!
