Becoming Mrs. Lewis, Book Talk and Tea with Author Patti Callahan

  • Circular Congregational Church 150 Meeting Street Charleston, SC, 29401 United States (map)

From New York Times bestselling author Patti Callahan comes an exquisite novel of Joy Davidman, the woman C. S. Lewis called “my whole world.” When poet and writer Joy Davidman began writing letters to C. S. Lewis—known as Jack—she was looking for spiritual answers, not love. Love, after all, wasn’t holding together her crumbling marriage. Everything about New Yorker Joy seemed ill-matched for an Oxford don and the beloved writer of Narnia, yet their minds bonded over their letters. Embarking on the adventure of her life, Joy traveled from America to England and back again, facing heartbreak and poverty, discovering friendship and faith, and against all odds, finding a love that even the threat of death couldn’t destroy. 

Join us on October 28th at the beautiful Circular Congregational Church in downtown Charleston to celebrate the release of Becoming Mrs. Lewis. We will enjoy a book discussion along with Q and A session with Author Patti Callahan about her latest work. Following the discussion tea and refreshments will be served and guests will have the opportunity to meet Patti and have their books personalized. All guests will be entered in the raffle for a chance to win a gift basket that will be announced at the end of the event.
