New York Times best-selling author—and part-time Palmetto Bluff resident—Patti Callahan Henry will discuss her new historical novel Becoming Mrs. Lewis with Pastor Jonathan Riddle of Bluffton’s iconic Church of the Cross. Becoming Mrs. Lewis tells the story of poet and writer Joy Davidman, the woman famed Narnia author C. S. Lewis called “my whole world.” In this exploration of one of the greatest literary love stories of modern times, readers meet a brilliant writer, a fiercely independent mother, and a passionate woman who changed the life of this respected author and inspired books that still enchant us and change us. A fascinating historical novel and a glimpse into a writer’s life, Becoming Mrs. Lewis is above all a love story—a love of literature and ideas and a love between a husband and wife. A book signing will follow the discussion.

“Becoming Mrs. Lewis illuminates the raw humanity of seeking faith in a distrustful world. We’ve heard C. S. Lewis’s narrative. Here, Callahan keenly demystifies poet Joy Davidman’s story and in the telling, shows us the power of a greater love. I was wonderstruck by this novel.”—Sarah McCoy, author of Marilla of Green Gables and The Baker’s Daughter
