C. S. Lewis: In Memoriam — Update

by Linda Bridges

A few weeks ago I posted an item about the upcoming 50th anniversary of C. S. Lewis’s death and a conference being held in New York City to celebrate and reflect on his life and works.

Registrations are still being accepted for the conference, which will take place this coming Saturday, November 23, sponsored jointly by the Fulton J. Sheen Center for Thought and Culture and the New York C. S. Lewis Society.

“C. S. Lewis: In Memoriam” will feature noted speakers from here and abroad, a forum addressing the question “Why C. S. Lewis?” and many opportunities for informal discussion. There will also be a screening of the documentary Beyond Narnia. Dinner is included in the registration fee. The conference will take place at the Cathedral High School on 56th Street just west of First Avenue in Manhattan, from 1 to 8 p.m.

For more information, please contact Rosemarie Bruno at [email protected] or 646-794-3479. My original Corner post gave only one payment method: sending a check ($35 per person) payable to The Archdiocese of New York (memo Lewis event) to: Rosemarie H. Bruno, Sheen Center, 1011 First Avenue, 7th Floor, New York, NY 10022-4112. The organizers have since made it possible to register online, here.

I’m greatly looking forward to the conference, and I hope many of you will join us.
