C. S. Lewis Tonight

Tonight at 8:00, come for "An Evening with C. S. Lewis." This event is free and open to the public/free-will offering. Entrance at 7:30.
The year is 1963 and C. S. Lewis, the famous British author, is in the twilight years of his life. Despite failing health, he has agreed to give an informal talk to a group of American writers who are visiting England. They have come to Lewis’ home, just outside of Oxford, and are eagerly anticipating hearing the man who has become a legend in his own lifetime. They are not disappointed. Lewis is in great form and his audience is spellbound as, with a display of oratory and humor that made him one of England’s most famous public speakers, he recounts the significant events and the people that shaped his life. 
British-born actor, David Payne, is renowned for his productions of works based on the life and writings of C. S. Lewis, famed author of The Lion, The Witch & the Wardrobe, The Screwtape Letters, and many other works.
