Our donor hoped to put one of the finished bookmarks in the hands of every Freshman on campus, which we attempted to accomplish with the help of our professors.
We currently have displays in the library featuring each of the entries for the contest, as well as a timeline of C. S. Lewis' life and major works.
From the bookmark:
"Through the gift and direction of a generous local donor, University Library has added 86 titles by and about C. S. Lewis (1898—1963) since January 2012. The enhanced collections attempt to provide a complete catalog of novels, poems, theological and philosophical monographs, literary criticism, children's books, essays, and memoirs by this highly influential Christian scholar. The aims for the collection now include adding audio books and DVDs, a process that has already begun, as well as secondary works about Lewis.
"It's hard to overestimate the influence Lewis had and continues to have on generations of scholars and the public. His science fiction, children's literature, and devotional writings persist in popularity, while his scholarly works continue to be studied and analyzed. Derivative works such as movies and plays entice young audiences and lay the foundation of a generous and beautiful Christian theology. Lewis' prodigious body of work can be found throughout the library."
The Davis Library welcomes you to stop by and take a look at the featured art of our talented students as well as portions of the fantastic collection of Lewis' works that we have here at the library.
