Happy Birthday Jack

29 Nov

On this day, in 1898, Clive Staples Lewis was born in Belfast, Ireland.  He was more popularly known as C.S. Lewis, but his friends all called him Jack.

He slipped quietly from this world on 22 November 1963, his passing overshadowed by louder events of the day.  (22 November 1963 was the day John F. Kennedy was shot.)

 

One of the most influential writers of Christian Speculative Fiction, his Chronicles of Narnia series is a joy to read, for young and old alike. 

Happy Birthday Jack, and thanks for all the books.
