Introducting the C. S. Lewis Festival 2014 theme, A Quest for Meaning
This year's festival celebrates the upcoming documentary A Quest for Meaning: Myth, Imagination & Faith In the Lives & Literature of C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien. Says Lewis scholar Peter Schakel, "[A Quest for Meaning] does a really thorough job of examining the significance of myth in Lewis and Tolkien's thought and art in a clear, inviting, unified way. The people interviewed are insightful and articulate, and the visual images are superb. I think it's very effective in clarifying and conveying the meaningfulness of myth." We are pleased to present an advance screening of the film before its national public broadcasting premiere.
Join us for our kickoff weekend on October 24-26, 2014. Meet and talk with filmmakers Chip Duncan and David Crouse, along with writer and educators Verlyn Flieger and Peter Schakel. Duncan and Crouse will also speak at a separate lunch.
