On the principle that something is better than nothing at all, this month’s digest will once again be a simple listing of titles and authors. This is for the October/November 2008 issue of the Catholic Worker.

As far as I know, the text and woodcut graphics of the Catholic Worker are not available on-line. If you would like the full text of an article that I mention here, I have three suggestions:
1) Try to borrow the article through Interlibrary Loan.
2) Contact the archivist for the CW at Marquette University:
Department of Special Collections and University Archives
Raynor Memorial Libraries
1355 W. Wisconsin Ave, PO Box 3141
Milwaukee, WI 53201-3141
3) Try contacting the Catholic Worker directly. They MAY be willing to send you the article, though I don’t know if they have morgue files. It seems likely they do, since they often reprint Dorothy Day articles. Contact information for Catholic Worker appears in the “subscribe” section below.
Even you if you don’t like what you see here, I encourage you to try a subscription to the Catholic Worker. They will give you a subscription for $0.25/year (If you want to cover the actual costs of a subscription, send them $10). You can hardly do better than a quarter a year!
Send your subscription requests to:
36 East 1st St.
New York, NY 10003
Telephone: 212-777-9617 or 212-677-8627.
Even if you think you hate the Catholic Worker movement and all it stands for, subscribe anyway. See what the other side is doing. Also get it for the obituaries. Nowhere else will you find people memorializing the marginalized the way the Catholic Worker celebrates the lives that come through their houses of hospitality. Everyone can learn something about how to see every person’s dignity by perusing these obituaries.
