The C.S. Lewis Foundation announces the first in a series of summer academic programmes to be held at The Kilns, the former home of
the late author and Christian apologist C.S. Lewis. Entitled "Branches To Heaven: The Geniuses of CS Lewis", the programme is
based on the book of the same title written by conference leader Dr. James Como, who will explore the range of Lewis genius while
addressing the surprising reason for his enduring literary and spiritual influence. The summer programme will offer unique access to Lewis
home to a small group of participants. -- http://cslewis.org:80/news/branches.htm
