Dr. Jerry Root and Dr. Diana Glyer were the keynote speakers for the 18th Annual Conference of the C.S. Lewis and Inklings Society (CSLIS) which is held at a different location each year. For 2015, it was at Grove City College (in PA) at the end of March. This is the first of a two-part episode that was moderated by William O'Flaherty. Here are the questions addressed for this segment:

  • Tell us about your first encounter with the writings of C.S. Lewis...how old were you and what were your impressions?
  • What daily habit would you recommend for those growing in their appreciation of literature and the literary arts?
  • Owen Barfield, of the seven authors collection at the Wade Center is one of the least read and discussed..so, what works should a person begin with?
  • I heard Jerry Root recommend Dymer (poetry book by Lewis); why do you and any thoughts on Spirits in Bondage?
  • Would you suggest a reading schedule for a young scholar; and ideal and practical one?
  • Where do we see Joy's influence and/or contributions in Till We Have Faces?
