The Inklings Festival, July 23, 2016

Early bird registration for the Second Annual Eighth Day Inklings Festival ends this Friday, July 15--and includes a free C.S. Lewis tote bag! The entire event is held inside and on the grounds of St. George Orthodox Cathedral here in Wichita, Kansas!

Here's the poster: (Note the need for CASH)

Here's the schedule:

Most of the presentations at this year's Inkling Festival are dedicated to C.S. Lewis (The Chronicles of Narnia and Till We Have Faces are featured), but my presentation is about Dorothy L. Sayers, the Oxford graduate (BA and MA), Christian apologist, translator of Dante and The Song of Roland, advertising copywriter, mystery writer, and playwright! My presentation is also distinguished by having the shortest abstract!

While not an active member of the Inkling group, mystery writer and Anglo-Catholic theologian Dorothy L. Sayers was known to Lewis, Tolkien, et al. This presentation will serve as an introduction to Sayers’ life and work - particularly her examination of the role of women in society and the Church. Her dedication to essential Christian doctrines as the guides to creating great drama and framing true morality will also demonstrate her support of the Inklings’ literary and religious revivals.
