Over the years he has presented many interesting programs for the Fresno County Library on literary cinema topics. He currently is active in local veteran’s groups and also volunteers at Heart of the Horse. His presentation for our meeting will be on Father Brown stories.. Father Brown is an amateur detective who is featured in 53 short stories published between 1918 -1936 written by English novelist G. K. Chesterton. The Father Brown television series can be seen on PBS most Sunday nights at 7 PM. This series (featuring Mark Williams) is set during the 1950s, in the fictional village of Kembleford, where Father Brown , priest at St. Mary’s Catholic Church solves murder cases.
