Kate Hennessy will visit the University of Virginia September 14-15 to share her memories and new family biography, Dorothy Day: The World will be Saved by Beauty (2017). Kate is the granddaughter of Dorothy Day (1897-1980), a famous Catholic convert, cofounder of the Catholic Worker Movement and Houses of Hospitality, and a heroic American social activist who tirelessly advocated for peace and the poor among us. All are invited to attend this free public lecture, so bring a friend or attend and introduce yourself to someone new.
UVA Bookstore will offer Kate's family biography of Dorothy Day for purchase in the Lobby of Minor Hall before the lecture, starting at 4:45pm. Kate looks forward to meeting you and will happily sign these or any copies of her book upon request.
