Jack in Retrospect

Jack in Retrospect

This is a weekly feature, just begun in 2013, highlights many of the events and accomplishments in the life of C.S. Lewis, along with books of his works published after his death. Anyone fairly familiar with C.S. Lewis knows he wrote a lot of books, but did you know he also had many shorter works (essays, sermons and addresses) published in his life? Likewise, there are a variety of interesting facts that many casual fans are unaware. One is that Lewis died on the same day that John F. Kennedy was assassinated and that Aldous Huxley  also passed away (November 23, 1963. This year is the 50th anniversary of those events and is a key reason for the creation of my weekly series.
