Greetings from Oxford! My group transferred here on Monday and we have been attending the C.S. Lewis Summer Institute. Today we toured The Kilns, Lewis’s home for the last thirty years of his life. It was named the Kilns because it used to be a brick factory in World War II, which has since been refurbished and remodeled into a beautiful home. I really loved seeing his actual possessions and walking around his gorgeous property. Being in Oxford helps me understand how and why he was inspired to write such fantastical works- this place appeals to imagination!
