...and lastly The Grand Opening of Chesterton and Company Cigars of Steubenville!
One of the greatest nights of my life. Thank you to Matt Fradd, Rob, Chad, Matt and all the owners of The Chesterton and Company cigars of Steubenville for your warm welcome and hospitality. And, thank you, to all who came down to the event. It warmed my heart to see such a generous spirit and participate in such an intentionally Catholic, community event.
John Walker, a professional actor, joins this episode of Uncommon Sense and talks about his own journey through Hollywood and how he eventually ended up taking up the role of playing G.K. Chesterton himself.
I am putting the final touches on my book “Chasing Chesterton” The 2nd edition. Here are some pre-release book reviews: “Take a ride through the whirlwind that is John Walker's mind as he first dreams of becoming G.K. Chesterton, until, years later, when he actually becomes G. K. Chesterton, as an actor playing the journalist in a one man show. The journey contains many ups and downs, and the author keeps you on the edge of your seat as you wonder if he'll ever make it. The story is fast-paced, interesting, and for those who wonder what television filming is like, a real eye-opener. "How many takes to make a scene? More than you can imagine. How many hours of film will they shoot to ultimately do a one hour show? More than you can imagine. How many hours does it take to memorize a very long one-man show? Hours? Let's talk YEARS! Readers already familiar with the life and work of G.K. Chesterton will find this story intriguing. Readers who wonder why people are interested in a jolly journalist from a hundred years ago will find this story interesting. Readers who dream of acting on stage or screen will find this story fascinating. Readers unfamiliar with Chesterton or acting will be drawn into the story anyway, because the author worked so hard to learn everything about the British accent, his movements, his speech patterns (by studying old recordings) and then there's the incredible memorization. Read it for yourself, and enjoy!” Nancy Carpentier Brown, author of “The Woman Who Was Chesterton” and “The Chestertons And The Golden Key” "The Chesterton's and the Top Meadow Troupe" along with many scholarly articles for Gilbert magazine and other periodicals.
