C.S. Lewis also died 50 years ago today. Taking nothing from the other observations occurring now, let us remember the man who gave us “The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe,” “The Screwtape Letters,” and “Mere Christianity.”

If you’re in the Wheaton, Illinois area, visit the Wade Center on the campus of Wheaton College. There you can see the actual “wardrobe.” (Actually, it’s said to be one of several owned by Lewis.) But don’t venture inside. You may never come back.
