The 10th Year
This year was our tenth celebrating the work of C. S. Lewis in art galleries, schools, bookstores, libraries, theaters, and faith communities. As Lewis' life and works also touch many spheres, this year's theme was appropriately titled "C. S. Lewis in the Public Square."
On Friday, October 26 the Manthei Speaker Series featured Mickey Maudlin of HarperOne, who spoke on "C. S. Lewis & Today's Reader." The next day, October 27, he joined Dr. Christopher Mitchell, Sarah Arthur, and Peter Schakel at our Saturday Seminar.
