I had a wonderful time last week in Indianapolis speaking to the Central Indiana C. S. Lewis Society about the life and work of Sheldon Vanauken, author of A Severe Mercy.
Fans and friends of Vanauken may be interested to know there will be a service in memory of Van at his beloved St. Stephen's Church in Forest, Virginia on Saturday, October 24. For details contact Fr. Christopher Heying at St. Stephen's http://www.ststephensforest.org/.
I will be speaking at this event and sharing my powerpoint presentation with many photos of the places from Van's life depicted in A Severe Mercy. For those in Lynchburg who have already seen my presentation you will be happy to know that it has been updated with many new photographs and some new information gleaned from my recent research.
