Escaping to Narnia

Friday 22 November
EastSide Visitor Centre



Children and childlike imagination were a major influence on C.S. Lewis's literary work. In this presentation by Lewis expert, Eve Williams, we will learn about Lewis's childhood in Belfast, look at his childhood imaginings from Animal-Land to Narnia and find out about his perceptions of childhood when he became a stepfather for the first time in his 60's. With interviews from Lewis's stepson Douglas Gresham as well as the voice of the man himself, this talk will give an insight into the work and character of one of the greatest children's writers of the twentieth century.
