Topic: C S Lewis and the Nature of Friendship Keynote Speaker: Dr. Jerry Root “C.S. Lewis and the Nature of Friendship” – Lewis had a remarkable capacity for friendship. Why? Lewis practiced what he preached. Everybody seemed to matter to him: from taxi drivers to BBC broadcasters; from academics to gardeners; from poets to barbers; Lewis had the capacity to make friends from all walks of life. What was it about the man that made this true of him? And of us? Dr. Jerry Root will discuss these questions and more during the Keynote Address.
