Mineola library to host talk about author


Journalist and author Carolyn Curtis will appear at the Mineola Memorial Library at 1 p.m. on Feb. 7 to discuss the book Women and C.S. Lewis: What his life and literature reveal for today’s culture.

The event, which will be held in the library’s Meredith Room, is sponsored by Friends of the Mineola Memorial Library.

The book, which was edited by Curtis and Mary Pomroy Key, is a collection of short essays, opinion pieces and interviews from academics and writers who delve into the question of how Lewis, a 20th century British author and scholar, regarded girls and women during his life in literature.

Lewis is the author of the Chronicles of Narnia as well as other acclaimed works of literature that include Mere Christianity, Screwtape Letters, Surprised by Joy and The Four Loves among others.

Along with talking about Lewis’s ideas about women, Curtis will entertain questions and comments from the audience as well as sign copies of her latest book, which will be available for purchase.

Curtis has authored or collaborated on seven books. She also has worked as journalist for the Wall Street Journal as well as several other news organizations. She holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Texas at Austin and a master’s degree in communication from Stephen F. Austin State University.
