ANNOUNCEMENT: C.S. Lewis and Friends Colloquium with special theme of FRIENDSHIP

JOIN US at The Center for the Study of C.S. Lewis & Friends at Taylor University for our 10th Ewbank Colloquium, June 2-5, 2016.

We are excited to announce that our keynote speakers for 2016 include Dr. Diana Glyer, Colin Duriez, and Sørina Higgins.

The Colloquium will honor two important friendships. Taylor University professor Dr. David Neuhouser, who established the colloquium in 1997, and Dr. Ed Brown, whose collection of books and manuscripts became the heart of the Center, both passed away in 2015.

About Brenton Dickieson

“A Pilgrim in Narnia” is a blog project in reading and talking about the work of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and the worlds they touched. As a "Faith, Fantasy, and Fiction" blog, we cover topics like children’s literature, apologetics and philosophy, myths and mythology, fantasy, theology, cultural critique, art and writing. This blog includes my thoughts as I read through Lewis and Tolkien and reflect on my own life and culture. In this sense, I am a Pilgrim in Narnia--or Middle Earth, or Fairyland. I am often peeking inside of wardrobes, looking for magic bricks in urban alleys, or rooting through yard sale boxes for old rings. If something here captures your imagination, leave a comment, “like” a post, share with your friends, or sign up to receive Narnian Pilgrim posts in your email box. Brenton Dickieson is a father, husband, friend, university lecturer, and freelance writer from Prince Edward Island, Canada. You can follow him on Twitter, @BrentonDana.

    Cross-referencing your post about letters, I am fascinated as I read John Garth’s Tolkien and the Great War to follow the letters Tolkien and his old school friends are exchanging while at the Front! Including, circulating copies of poems and returning them with comments, or passing them on to another (Front-line) friend first!
