Re-Inklings book club to focus on C.S. Lewis
Through the 1930s and for nearly two decades, a group of writers and scholars called the Inklings gathered twice a month in a pub in Oxford, England, to read each other’s works and share ideas.
The Rev. Bernard S. Mason (left) and Book Tavern owner David Hutchison have begun a book club called the Re-Inklings, to discuss the works of the original Inklings, a group of English writers and scholars that includes C.S. Lewis.
Some of the works produced by writers who are still considered extremely influential – including C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien – were among those discussed.
“Oxford was so different from what schools are like now,” said the Rev. Bernard Mason. “People would gather in these learning spaces and meet in these small group settings. It was more of a tutorial kind of experience.”
