Dorothy Day: Selected Writings; by Little and by Little

This edition marks the twenty-fifth anniversary of the death of Dorothy Day (1897-1980), co-founder of the Catholic Worker movement, and one of the most inspiring figures of recent history. By her lifelong option for the poor and her devotion to active nonviolence, Day fashioned a new face for the gospel in our time. In 2000 the Vatican recognized her cause for canonization, and she was officially termed "Servant of God." To mark the occasion, Orbis is pleased to issue an anniversary edition of Dorothy Day: Selected Writings, widely recognized as the essential and authoritative guide to her life and work.
