During the C.S. Lewis Festival, join the Saturday Seminar at Great Lakes Center for the Arts on Saturday, September 17th. The theme will be “Women and C.S. Lewis”. Following the seminars, at 1:45 PM there will be a Round Table discussion where scholars will reflect on today’s topic and also take questions from seminar attendees.
Theme: Women and C.S. Lewis
- Ann Voskamp, Author, Lecturer, Blogger
- Reflections and Women and C.S. Lewis How does a man who called himself “a dinosaur” speak to the way resonant thinkers, the skeptics, the seekers, the creatives, the grieving, the mothers, the followers of Christ, or those who identify as any of the above, in today’s complicated, shifting culture? A story of women, C.S. Lewis – and a story that moves far beyond the walls of the world.
- Carolyn Curtis, Author, Lecturer
- Women and C.S. Lewis: What his life and literature reveal for today’s culture She will tell the audience about the rumor she heard which motivated her to defend Lewis with this book to which other Lewis authorities also contributed. It is written in the popular voice rather than the “scholarly” voice for easy reading.
- Sarah Arthur, Author, Festival Co-founder
- Not Today, Jack: How to argue lovingly with your favorite (dead) author What do we do when we love an author like C.S. Lewis but disagree with his views on women, for instance? Or marriage? Or his narrative choice about Susan in The Last Battle?
