Dancing on the Edge Women’s Book Group: Our reading for March is “Nomadland” by Jessica Bruder. All are welcome for fellowship and discussion in the Second Cafe each second and fourth Monday evening at 7 p.m.
Adult Education on March 18 and 25: Jonathan Thorndike will lead classes on the British writer-scholar C. S. Lewis and The Great Divorce. Lewis called the book “a dream vision” and “theological fantasy” wherein the narrator meets George MacDonald, the Scottish preacher and theologian. The Great Divorce concerns the distance between heaven and hell in more ways than one, and the book contains some of Lewis’ finest religious writing. Thorndike is Director of the Honors Program at Belmont, where he teaches interdisciplinary Great Books courses and is a regular lecturer at King’s College, London on C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and the Inklings. He has published many essays on Japanese and British Literature including essays in the C. S. Lewis Readers’ Encyclopedia and a forthcoming essay on C. S. Lewis and Horace Miner in The St. Austin Review. His book Epperson vs. Arkansas won a state library book-of-the-year award, and he appeared on a panel with the novelist John Grisham. Last year, he was a keynote speaker at Aquinas College’s “Tolkien and Lewis Celebration.”
