Winter at the Kilns
by Cole Matson
Kilns Warden Donna McDaniel has posted about activities at the Kilns over the past few winter months. Visiting scholars included Diana Pavlac Glyer (author of The Company They Keep, about the Inklings as a writing group, which won this past year’s Mythopoeic Scholarship Award in Inklings Studies), theologian/academic/poet/musician/priest Malcolm Guite (whom I met at the Kilns seminar), and Michael Ward (author of the controversial new book Planet Narnia, soon to be a BBC documentary called The Narnia Code – whom I also met). Donna also talks about local families coming to play with their children in the C.S. Lewis Nature Reserve during a beautiful winter’s snow. Donna and company were wonderful hostesses during the seminar, and I look forward to spending more time with her and the rest of the Kilns community in the next year.
