The second annual Petoskey Area C.S. Lewis Festival will be held in Northern Michigan this November (www.cslewisfestival.org). Dubbed as “a month-long celebration of the life and works of one of the most beloved authors of the 20th-century,” the festival has received state-wide recognition as a unique collaborative effort between the local arts council, public schools, community college, and ministerial association.
Included among its board members is David Crouse of Crouse Entertainment, a local film producer who co-produced the PBS documentary “The Magic Never Ends: The Life and Works of C.S. Lewis”; as well as Dr. Christopher Mitchell, Director of the Marion E. Wade Center in Wheaton, Illinois. He will be leading a day-long seminar, along with another Lewis scholar, on Saturday, November 6. A Children’s Theater will perform a musical of “The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe” Nov. 12-14.
