A memoir of social activism from the founder of the Catholic Worker Movement, this book is a classic.  When Dorothy Day died in 1980, the New York Times eulogized her as “a nonviolent social radical of luminous personality… founder of the Catholic Worker Movement and leader for more than fifty years in numerous battles of social justice.”  Here, in her own words, this remarkable woman tells of her early life as a young journalist in the crucible of Greenwich Village political and literary thought in the 1920s, and of her momentous conversion to Catholicism that meant the end of a Bohemian lifestyle and common-law marriage.  For the first session, please read Introduction to page 72.
