This fall, we will discuss C. S. Lewis' An Experiment in Criticism, beginning in October. In this short booklet, we will explore a variety of questions such as:
- How should we approach art?
- What preconceived ideas are we bringing to the table that might inhibit our understanding of a piece of literature?
- What is the author or artist actually trying to tell us? Are we getting in the way of that?
- Do we have a duty of charity toward any author or artist whose works we might encounter?
If you're interested in exploring these questions, I'd like to invite you to join us for these three fall discussion sessions as we take the book in three short chunks. Each meeting is from 9:30 - 10:30 AM on the second Friday of each month: October 14, November 11, and December 9. You can purchase An Experiment in Criticism here, and you can access our reading schedule here.
I continue to be grateful for God's faithfulness to Augustine Classical Academy and for the eagerness its teachers have to pursue their own excellence for the glory of God and the good of all people.
