Bio of Friendship (Duriez)Get a chance to win a copy of the latest book by Colin Duriez, C.S. Lewis: A Biography of Friendship. It’s not officially out in the U.S. until June 1st, but you could win it now! Also, be sure to listen to the interview I did with the author that was posted yesterday.

Please note, as with most of my contests, it is ONLY open to those living in the U.S. (sorry, but it’s the publisher who mails the prize and they set the limits). See complete rules below.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO TO ENTER is simply leave a comment below about ANY fact about Lewis that you know, or can find. If you need one check out my facts on Twitter. Deadline to enter is Thursday, May 16th at 6 p.m. Eastern.

NOTE: Only one entry per person, so if you entered already on the first announcement don’t do it again here. Those who haven’t yet can enter on either announcement page.

FIVE random individuals from those who enter will be the winners! You will be notified by email, so leave an address you check frequently (it will be from lewisminute (at)

    C.S. Lewis took in many children into his country house during the war. This gave him much of the inspiration for his most famous children’s book, “The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe”.

    Lewis wrote all his books and letters by hand.

    C. S. Lewis begins chapter 4 of SURPRISED BY JOY by giving his incorrect age. (There may be an explanation for this, but it’s the wrong age nonetheless.)
