A Pilgrim in Narnia Mid-Stride: Looking Both Ways with Brenton Dickieson (InklingFolkFellowship Guest Talk, Fri, Nov 20, 4pm ET)

I am pleased to be hosting a conversation about my blogging here at A Pilgrim in Narnia on Friday, hosted by Dr. Joe Ricke. All are welcome to join in. I have gone to about a dozen of these Friday afternoon events since the spring, and I quite like the dynamic. To prepare for the event, you might be interested in one of these posts:

Here is the announcement, and I hope to see you there!

A Pilgrim in Narnia Mid-Stride:
Looking Both Ways with Brenton Dickieson

What in the world was Brenton Dickieson thinking about/dreaming of/wishing for when he launched his now uber-successful blog, A Pilgrim in Narnia, in August 2011? Looking back, almost ten years later, what does he think about the journey he has taken (and taken us on)? And, looking ahead, what does he foresee or hope for in the future?
These are not just rhetorical questions, friends. After all, this is the InklingFolkFellowship. We have standards to uphold, especially when it comes to collaborating with and promoting the very best of something as preciousssssss to us as Inkling scholarship.

Join us this Friday, November 20, at 4 p.m. (EST) for a conversation with (now Dr.) Brenton Dickieson about his life and work, especially his game-changing “Faith, Fantasy, and Fiction blog,” A Pilgrim in Narnia (now up to 1,039,287 visitors; no, wait, I just visited, so it must be 1,039,288).

As always, we meet on Zoom (information below). Please invite your friends to join us. Find our event page on Facebook or our post on Instagram and share them as you see fit. And please spend some time (if you haven’t before) wandering about in the rich land of Brenton’s Pilgrim blog: https://apilgriminnarnia.com.

See you Friday!. Please come with questions, comments, and words of encouragement for Brenton, a most generous scholar and friend to all InklingFolk.

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.

    Knowing your close knowledge of C.S. Lewis (and the wider Inklings), I wonder if you have any information about Lewis being aware of, or reading anything by Elizabeth Goudge?


  2. Hi Brenton, I only just found out about this, so I’m posting it here in case you haven’t seen it. Tolkien’s house in Oxford is up for sale and there’s a project to raise the money to buy it. https://www.projectnorthmoor.org/video
