Start Time: 10:30 AM
End Time: 11:30 AM
 C. S. Lewis, long renowned for his children's book series The Chronicles of Narnia, has been the subject of wide interest since he first stepped-up to the BBC's microphone during the Second World War. But why did this medievalist begin writing books for a popular audience, to the dismay of some of his colleagues at Oxford University? And why have these books continued to be so popular? Somehow, Lewis's books have continued to resonate in the decades since his death in 1963. In this lecture, Dr. Derrick considers why this is the case, arguing that Lewis was just one actor among many shaping his lasting fame. Registration required.
