Every week, I’ll put up a quotation related to writing or creation and tell you a little bit about the person who said it. I’ll try to vary the speakers as much as possible.
“We read to know that we are not alone.” - C.S. Lewis
Clive Staples Lewis was an Irish writer known for his fiction, including Chronicles of Narnia and the Space Trilogy, as well as non-fiction such as Mere Christianity. He was a good friend of J. R. R. Tolkien. He died on 22 November 1963, the same day Aldous Huxley died and President JF Kennedy was assassinated. Oddly, C. S. Lewis was known to his friends and family as ‘Jack’.
