 The C.S. Lewis & Friends Society

The Center for the Study of C.S. Lewis & Friends seeks to encourage and facilitate the study of the works of C.S. Lewis, George MacDonald, Charles Williams, Dorothy L. Sayers, and Owen Barfield. Inspired by Lewis’s informal literary discussion group, the Inklings, the C.S. Lewis & Friends Society leads students, scholars, and community members in the discussion of these authors’ works. The Center hosts classes, seminars, events, and a biennial colloquium on Lewis-related topics. Through these endeavors, the Center serves Taylor University and the surrounding community by providing materials for scholarly research and forwarding discussion on one of Christianity’s most beloved and important authors.

The society meets from September to May and all who are interested are invited to attend. There are no membership dues.
