On Thursday 4 May at Lewis for Educators, Andrew Lansdown gave his keynote address on the subject of whether Christians ought to be reading or writing fantasy literature. Given the controversy in some parts of the world over J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series, Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials trilogy and even C.S. Lewis’s The Chronicles of Narnia, this is an issue worth exploring in some depth. You can listen to what Andrew has to say on the subject by downloading the MP3 of his talk (22.2MB; 57 min approx).
On Saturday 6 May at Lewis for Everyone, Chris Mitchell, Director of the Marion E. Wade Center in Illinois (an international research centre on Lewis and the other Inklings), gave a talk on C.S. Lewis's address, “Transposition”, and how it relates to The Chronicles of Narnia and Lewis's other works. We are pleased to be able to offer the MP3 of his talk as a free download (23.7MB; 50 min approx).
