STORY AND PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK

C.S. Lewis, best known for “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” books, will be in the spotlight during the final choral evensong at St. Thomas Episcopal Church this fall.

The Evensong Choir will host an evensong commemorating Lewis at 5:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 12. The evensong will draw from Irish music and music associated with Oxford University in England.

Lewis, who was born in 1898 in Belfast, Ireland, was a British writer and Anglican lay theologian. He was good friends with “The Lord of the Rings” author J.R.R. Tolkien who served with him on the English faculty of Oxford University.

Having cut his teeth on Beatrix Potter’s anthropomorphic stories, he himself wrote such fictional works as “The Chronicles of Narnia” and “The Screwtape Letters.” He also wrote non-fiction Christian apologetics, such as “Mere Christianity.”
