The Center for the Study of C.S. Lewis & Friends
The Center for the Study of C.S. Lewis and Friends at Taylor University seeks to facilitate and encourage the reading and study of C.S. Lewis, George MacDonald, Charles Williams, Dorothy L. Sayers, and Owen Barfield.
The focal point of the Center is the Brown Collection, located in the lower level of the Zondervan Library. The Brown Collection consists of first editions, letters, manuscripts, photographs, and other items relating to these authors. It has been labeled the third largest C.S. Lewis collection in the world. The Center also contains a replica of the pub where Lewis met with a group of friends who called themselves “The Inklings.”
The Center hosts a C.S. Lewis Society, the goal of which is to celebrate and discuss the lives of Lewis and related authors. The group meets from September to May, holding events throughout the school year.
