July 14th is Out of the Silent Planet

Out of the Silent Planet is the first volume of what came to be known as C.S. Lewis's Space Trilogy. It was first published in 1938. Come out and join us at the Barnes and Noble in Harrisonburg on the second Thursday of each month. In July our meeting will be on the 14th at 7:30 p.m. Our discussion leader will be Peggy.

The story of Out of the Silent Planet represents a "supposal" as Lewis would call it. He was inspired by reading A Voyage to Arcturus by David Lindsay. Of this novel Lewis said, "It showed me what other worlds were for." Suppose there was another world where the intelligent life had not fallen as man did in our world. The story challenges the reader on many levels. Read it and come join us in July.
