February 14th Will Be "The Horse And His Boy"
Jessica will be our discussion leader on "The Horse and His Boy" from the Chronicles of Narnia.
We had a milestone at last night's 2013 kickoff meeting of the C.S. Lewis Society of Harrisonburg. The first ever Skype attendee. Melissa joined us from Pennsylvania but as with all experimental things it suffered a little from first time syndrome. We hope to do better in the future.
We discussed Peter Kreeft's "Between Heaven and Hell" with Peggy as our discussion leader and we also discussed the schedule for the coming year. We didn't finish that discussion but we have the first three months settled and some additional works sorted out.
March 14th we'll have an experiment and Melissa will be our discussion leader through the miracle of electronics on "Letters to Malcolm Chiefly on Prayer."
April 11th Jane will be our discussion leader on George Macdonald's "Sir Gibbie."
We also decided on some pairings of discussion leader and work which I'll list below but we still have to decide when.
Melissa will be our discussion leader for some essays from "God In The Dock."
Elizabeth will be our discussion leader for Owen Barfield's "Saving the Appearances."
Ray will be our discussion leader for Humphrey Carpenter's "The Inklings."
Peggy will be our discussion leader for "The Magician's Twin" edited by John West.
Cristabel signed on to be discussion leader for Dorothy Sayer's "Letters to a Diminished Church" and "Sense and Sensibility" by Jane Austen. This is a new category for us: Works by Writers Admired by C.S. Lewis. We'll be setting the actual months for these at future meetings. Notice that there are only nine works listed so we also have two slots open so think about what would be a good choice. A way to make sure your book gets on the agenda is to volunteer to be the discussion leader!
