We live in disrupted and disenchanted times. So, for that matter, have many in the past few centuries. How ought to we form our minds and hearts to meet with grace and magnanimity the confusion of the age in which we live? To these questions few modern authors have supplied more living answers than Dorothy Sayers, C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien. Join us to discover how these writers and others close to them renewed English fiction and the literary imagination in their day, and what we may yet learn from them in ours.
