June 9th is "Studies In Words"

At the Barnes and Noble in Harrisonburg, on June 9th at 7:30 p.m. the C.S. Lewis Society of Harrisonburg will be discussing C.S. Lewis's book Studies In Words.

As Lewis writes in the Preface, the book is based on lectures given at Cambridge and is focused on the lexical and historical meaning of words studied "... for the light they throw on ideas and sentiments."

Expect to find insights into what a variety of common words mean, have meant in the past and may mean in the future. Studies in Words was published in 1960.

Come and enjoy the company of other Lewisians who find insight and inspiration in the works of C.S. Lewis. Our discussion in June will be led by Jenny Fiero. To see the schedule for the coming months CLICK HERE.

Will Vaus's New Book Available: Speaking Of Jack

Will Vaus on the subject of his new book:

Speaking of Jack: A C. S. Lewis Discussion Guide is now in print. My copies arrived last week and I started shipping signed copies to those who have ordered from me.

I really like the way the book came out. The cover is beautiful, thanks to the work of Winged Lion Press. It also feels great. This cover is different from my other books in that it has a matte finish and so has a velvety feel to it which I like very much. This is also one of my larger books, at 278 pages.

You can read a sample chapter of the book HERE.
