The Faber Sessions #7, Part II: A Portrait of a Literary Artist
March 7 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
Till We Have Faces: A Myth Retold (1956). Walter Hooper, quoting Lewis about this novel that he wrote so late in his life (he died in November 1963): “This re-interpretation of an old story has lived in the author’s mind, thickening and hardening with the years, ever since he was an undergraduate. That way, he could be said to have worked at it most of his life.”
About The Faber Sessions:
We are bringing our concentration to bear, in this first half of 2022, on different members of the Oxford Inklings (our “Guests” at The Night School) and on less well known but important literary works of C.S. Lewis (The Faber Sessions).
During the pandemic, during those days when all of us were “stuck” at home together, we offered the Faber Sessions once a week, in your homes (via ZOOM), as our way of allowing you as families to be reading together, and finding in what you read an enrichment of your in-house conversations.
But now we offer the Faber Sessions once a month, on the evening the first Mondays, 6 PM to 7:30 PM. For now, the Faber Sessions will always be in your homes (via ZOOM), while we will eventually return to in-person evenings with The Night School, whenever the pandemic will allow us to return to in-person.
The Faber Sessions, Series 7, begins in February and concludes in June: five Sessions.
