M. Judson Lunch and Lit at Jianna, October 3rd – “Becoming Mrs. Lewis”
We’re excited to host another M. Judson Bookstore’s “Lunch & Lit” event at Jianna. On Wednesday, October 3 we’ll be hosting the lovely and talented New York Times bestselling author Patti Callahan Henry and her breakout new novel, Becoming Mrs. Lewis.
About the Book
When poet and writer Joy Davidman began writing letters to C. S. Lewis—known as Jack—she was looking for spiritual answers, not love. Love, after all, wasn’t holding together her crumbling marriage. Everything about New Yorker Joy seemed ill-matched for an Oxford don and the beloved writer of Narnia, yet their minds bonded over their letters. Embarking on the adventure of her life, Joy traveled from America to England and back again, facing heartbreak and poverty, discovering friendship and faith, and against all odds, finding a love that even the threat of death couldn’t destroy.
Patti will be in conversation with Furman history professor Diane Vecchio in what’s sure to be a fascinating peek behind the curtain of this real life love affair.
