October 13th is Lewis's The Discarded Image

C.S. Lewis wrote many books in many genres. The Discarded Image was his last book and one of his finest. It was derived from his many lectures on Medieval and Renaissance Literature which he taught at Oxford and Cambridge his entire scholarly life. (Click on the image to go to Barnes and Noble's on-line store.)

Our host for the October meeting will be Dr. Iain Maclean, a graduate of the Universities of Cape Town, Rhodes, South Africa, Princeton and Harvard. Dr. Maclean is Associate Professor of Western Religious Thought at James Madison University.

The meetings are on the second Thursday of each month at the Barnes and Noble in Harrisonburg. The meetings begin at 7:30 p.m. and some members enjoy a coffee and pastry at the Barnes and Noble Starbucks and early birds often stop for dinner at Panera's shortly after six o'clock before walking across the parking lot to the Barnes and Noble.

The schedule for the rest of the year will be two books that are not by Lewis but by influences on Lewis, November 10th The Man Who Was Thursday by G. K. Chesterton, and about Lewis, December 8th, Lewis Agonistes by Louis Markos, subtitled: How C.S. Lewis can train us to wrestle with the modern and postmodern world. At these meetings we'll be considering the schedule for next year.
