C. S. Lewis Festival Endorsements

Julie Ellison, Director of "Imagining Michigan"

"An unprecedented number of collaborating organizations, including North Central Michigan College, produced an event that drew record audiences and strong citizen support . . ."

Dr. Chris Mitchell

"The C. S. Lewis Festival has become one of the annual highlights of my year. I find its unique blend of intellectual stimulation, spiritual nourishment, and easy-going fellowship something I look forward to every autumn in a spectacular part of the country."

Dr. Michael Ward

"The C. S. Lewis Festival is a model for how such festivals ought to be run. It's like a great banquet, containing academic meat to chew on, arts of different kinds (musical, pictorial, dance) that make the heart glad like a good wine, and it goes on for a delightfully long time (stretching over a whole month). The dishes are sometimes local (the community and school aspect of the Festival is one of its best courses) and sometimes more exotic (involving visiting speakers and international guests). Friendly, varied, stimulating: what more could you ask for?"
