If you live in or near the Dallas / Fort Worth area, there is a lecture and dinner this coming Saturday. Short notice, I know, but I only learned of this yesterday. The well-known scholar Peter Kreeft will be speaking at Highland Park Presbyterian Church (a few blocks from Southern Methodist University) on Saturday, November 21, 2009 starting at 6:30 PM. The subject of the lecture is “Lewis, Tolkien, and the Culture War”. The event is not free, but it includes dinner for $75 or $100 (including a pre-dinner reception with Dr. Kreeft). There is also a silent auction, and the proceeds of the auction and dinner go to support the College of St. Thomas More in Fort Worth. This lecture is part of their series of short courses and college lectures, The C.S. Lewis Center for the Study of the Common Tradition: Lewis, Chesterton, Tolkien, and the Great Tradition.

Still, I will bring you what small news items I can during that time. Like this one ...
