Narnia on tour

The most recent issue of Addenda, the monthly e-mail newsletter from Mars Hill Audio, carried this blurb about Narnia on Tour, a series of events related to C. S. Lewis and The Chronicles of Narnia.

With the anticipated release of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe this fall, one can expect an avalanche of publicity, action figures, and the like. Nonetheless, one of the benefits of the movie is that, like Shadowlands a decade ago, it will draw attention to the life and work of C. S. Lewis. With the goal of fostering informed conversation about Lewis, his faith, imagination, and writing, the Matthew's House Project has organized Narnia on Tour , a series of Lewis-related events that will take place in various forums across the country beginning in September. Most events consist of a lecture and discussion time with a noted scholar (such as Ralph Wood, Bruce Edwards, or Dan Ritchie) but the Tour has also tied in with Wheaton College's Annual Writing and Literature Lecture Series and the Northern Michigan C. S. Lewis Festival. To find out if the Tour is coming to a city near you see the Narnia on Tour website for tour locations and dates. You can also find articles about Lewis (updated regularly), learn who was influenced by Lewis, and discover authors who write in a similar vein as he wrote. You also have the opportunity to be involved as a Tour road team member; to do so, contact the tour manager, Zach Kincaid (zkincaid@narniaontour.com).
