Summary of Lewis in Poets’ Corner
C.S. Lewis was buried 50 years ago today (11/26/1963). As you are likely aware he was just memorialized this past Friday in Poets’ Corner. The follow are some pieces related to that event and then also a few additional general articles about C.S. Lewis that were posted since my earlier post or ones I wasn’t aware of at the time. Feel free, as before, to post any additional links of other reports not mentioned here.
