Sat May 12 2018, 1:00 pm

In keeping with the celebration of the Suffragettes and the power of women, we are pleased to present this talk about Dorothy Day. She was a complicated woman: social activist, pacifist, writer, humanitarian and founder of the Catholic Worker movement.

Our guest lecturer is Geoffrey B. Gneuhs, a writer and artist living in New York City. In the late 1970s he was chaplain for the Catholic Worker movement and gave the eulogy at Dorothy Day’s funeral.

He will talk about her life and important events that led to her conversion to Catholicism. $5/ FREE TO GAHS MEMBERS

This program is supported by the membership of the Greater Astoria Historical Society and the surrounding communities of Long Island City.
