The lecture is at EvCC’s Henry M. Jackson Conference Center, Room 106, and is free and open to the public. No reservations are required.

He is a frequent participant in the institute’s summer honors programs and a mentor of Intercollegiate Studies Institute honors fellows. He's the co-editor of “The Riddle of Joy: G.K. Chesterton and C.S. Lewis,” and the co-editor of “Permanent Things: Toward the Recovery of a More Human Scale at the End of the Twentieth Century.”
