Lewis and Friends Banquet

Start Date

Description

Musical Prelude: Kelly Gruendyke

Invocation: Jay Kesler President Emeritus


Student Writing Contest Awards (Rick Hill; Pam Jordan-Long)

Tributes to Dr. David Neuhouser and Dr. Ed Brown

Music: Brian Ballinger - Cello, original composition, "Elegy"


Keynote: "Are You Lewissian, Tolkienian, or Something In-between?" - Diana Glyer

Despite their friendship and despite their often-noted similarities in themes and imagery, Lewis and Tolkien provide a study in sharp contrast in terms of their writing processes. This presentation will describe that contrast and its significance, and then challenge the participants to think about their own creative work. What kind of writers/artists are we? And what difference does it make? At this last major presentation of the Colloquium, we will consider Lewis and Tolkien and ourselves at a more personal, practical, and interactive level.
