Joseph Pearce spoke on the topic of G.K. Chesterton: Larger than Life as a part of the Aquinas College Lecture Series in March. Mr. Pearce was born in East London and spent his formative years with a far-right anti-Catholic group, an association which landed him in prison on two occasions. He credits the reading of G.K. Chesterton with his conversion of heart and conversion to Catholicism. Along with a definitive biography of Chesterton, Mr. Pearce has also penned works on Hilaire Belloc, Oscar Wilde, J.R.R. Tolkien, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, Roy Campbell, C.S. Lewis, and William Shakespeare.
