We are pleased to announce that Kate Hennessy, grand- daughter of Dorothy Day, will be coming to Saint Cecilia on Thursday, April 20 to do a reading and to speak about her book, Dorothy Day: The World Will Be Saved by Beauty: An Intimate Portrait of My Grandmother. James Martin, SJ said, “Kate Hennessy’s superb new biography of her grandmother, Dorothy Day, is an absolutely fascinating, deeply personal, and beautifully written story of one of the most important women—Catholic or otherwise—of our time.
