No apologies for making it all Narnia, all the time at Mere-O. I am unashamed to say that I’m terribly excited about the new film.

Feeding that excitement was Douglas Gresham, Lewis’s step-son, presence at Biola today. He was interviewed by Biola Dean of Humanities Todd Pickett. Mere-O friend Brant DeBow applied his usual superb live-blogging skills to the event. One tidbit:

A Grief Observed was not intended to be a published work, but it was simply a journal that Lewis used to get his thoughts out. He shared something I didn’t know – that A Grief Observed was published under a pen name. Apparently, Jack’s friend’s didn’t know this, and ended up reading it, loving it, and sending it to Jack to help him through his grief.

As the blogger says, “Heh.”
