Date: Thursday, February 7, 2013
Starting time: 8:00 pm, Eastern
Duration: 1 hour plus Q&A
Presenter: Nancy Brown

Description: Everyone already knows the importance of play. One of the reasons we homeschool is so our children have enough time to play. We know their imaginations are fired when children's schedules are free enough to have free time. And when adults play with children, adults find pleasure and activate their own imaginations. How can a busy parent take time to play with their children? Try a toy theater, like G.K. Chesterton had in his home. Find out more about the joys of a tiny theater in Nancy Brown's upcoming webinar, "Your Own Toy Theater: G.K. Chesterton's Legacy with Children."

Presenter's biography: Nancy is our resident expert on Frances Chesterton, wife of the British Author G.K. Chesterton. Nancy has compiled a collection of Frances’s plays and poetry which was published last year, and is just finishing up her biography, which will be out either late this year or next. Frances was instrumental in Gilbert’s conversion, and there are many who say that when the cause for Gilbert’s canonization is opened, it should be opened together, for Gilbert and Frances, as a married couple. Nancy also has 2 Chestertonian study guides to help high school parents introduce their teens to Chesterton, a study guide for Chesterton’s biography of St. Francis of Assisi and a study guide to the first Father Brown mystery, The Blue Cross. For younger children, Nancy has adapted the Father Brown stories for ages 8 to 12 with the Father Brown Reader One and Two. Nancy works at the American Chesterton Society as their Social Media Manager. She has spoken at their conferences, and writes for Gilbert Magazine.

Sponsor: Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, we are able to bring the Refresh! Conference to you completely Free. The sponsor for tonight's webinar is The American Chesterton Society. Please visit their website and see all they have to offer (including the great magazine Gilbert!). Thank you!
