Ronald Knox and Sherlock Holmes upcoming lecture

In anticipation of our March 1 lecture on "Ronald Knox and Sherlock Holmes: the Origin of Sherlockian Studies," NDWorks, the newspaper for Notre Dame faculty and staff, has published an article entitled "The Professor, the Monsignor, and Sherlock Holmes." You can read it here if you scroll down to page 7. The event will include a lecture by emeritus Professor Michael Crowe of the Program of Liberal Studies, followed by a reception, with the opportunity to purchase a copy of Prof. Crowe's book on the subject and have it signed. Join us at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 1 in the Hesburgh Center Auditorium to learn how Msgr. Ronald Knox's essay on Holmes ignited a literary movement that takes Sherlock Holmes seriously as an historical figure rather than as simply a character from literature.
