Why a C. S. Lewis Festival in Northern Michigan?

C. S. Lewis was enthralled of what he termed Pure Northernnes “a vision of huge, clear spaces hanging above the Atlantic (or Lake Michigan) in the endless twilight of Northern summer, remoteness, severity.” In 2002 a group of educators, cultural leaders, local clergy, and Emmy Award winning producer David Crouse, came together to help promote the screening of David’s television biography on Lewis. The Festival was thus organized to promote The Magic Never Ends: The Life and Faith of C. S. Lewis before it’s roll-out nationwide on PBS stations.
