C. S. Lewis Festival book discusssions pair essays and poems —
St. Andrews Anglican Church will host book discussions as part of the annual C.S. Lewis Festival. Discussions will take place Tuesday nights at 7:00 pm October 2 through November 6 at St. Andrews Anglican Church at 619 Waukazoo Avenue in Petoskey. Tim Strauss, Anglican Deacon-St. Andrew’s Anglican and Doug Mantha, C.S. Lewis Festival Board President will serve as facilitators.
The discussions will pair essays from God in the Dock by C.S. Lewis with poems by Malcolm Guite, one of the featured scholars at the C.S. Lewis Festival. Guite, poet, priest and chaplain of Girton College, Cambridge, travels around Great Britain and North America giving lectures, concerts and poetry readings.
Beards Brewery is also also hosting a series of discussions for the C.S. Lewis Festival. “Just an Inkling – Pub Nights,” will occur on Wednesdays at 6:30 pm from September 26 through October 24. The theme this year is “C.S. Lewis in Music and Poetry: The Divine Comedy.” Participants are encouraged to bring their own poetry or one of Lewis’ poems or another poem that speaks to them on this theme.
The C.S. Lewis Festival is an annual exploration of the life and works of the author of the popular Chronicles of Narnia and represents a collaboration of the arts and education communities in Northern Michigan. For further information, visit www.cslewisfestival.org.
