The No-Name Behind the Big-Name

Welcome to my birthday bash! If you’re just joining us, let me fill you in: My 50th birthday is just around the corner, and I’m celebrating by letting my inner nerd out to party! So, what’s my inner nerd? Well, it’s that I absolutely love C.S. Lewis. This week I’ll be talking all things C.S. Lewis on my blog, Facebook, and Twitter. Then, on Saturday, I’m giving away the Ultimate C.S. Lewis Swag Bag to one lucky winner! Be sure to enter the contest at the end of this post, and catch up on the party HERE and peek into the Swag Bag HERE.

Walter Hooper met C.S. Lewis in Oxford, England at The Kilns – C.S. Lewis’ home – in June of 1963. I met Walter Hooper a few summers ago at that same place.

As a young man, Walter traveled across the pond to meet the author who deeply influenced and inspired him. As a middle-aged woman, I too traveled across that same pond to study the author who deeply influenced and inspired me. I studied at the C.S. Lewis Institute. And, when I arrived, I received a treasure I never expected … I met Walter Hooper!
