It’s C. S. Lewis’s Birthday! How Will You Celebrate?

November 29th, 2007 | Skip to comments

aslanFor a start, you can listen to an MP3 of my talk, “America’s Bonny Fighter,” at the SEBTS-sponsored C S Lewis Conference in North Carolina–either by going to this subscription site for iTunes , finding my talk in SEBTS list, and choosing “download free episode,” or download the streaming version at this SEBTS site. (The links to other plenary presentations are accessible at the end of this entry.)

Here are some other ways to celebrate:

  1. Have a Guinness.
  2. Talk in a lilting Belfast accent all day.
  3. Wear orange.
  4. Quote Profesor Kirke, “I wonder what they do teach them at these schools?”
  5. Ask George MacDonald to baptize your imagination.
  6. Read my imagined dialogue with Lewis.
  7. Have a cup of piping hot tea. Then another. And another.
  8. Read the last three paragraphs of the last chapter of The Last Battle out loud to someone.
  9. Take a brisk walk over some grassy hills with a hardy companion who likes to talk about myth.
  10. Have a Guinness.
