“50 Fans, 50 Years Later,”- HarperCollins Commemorates the C. S. Lewis Legacy

On November 22, 2013, in Westminster Abbey, a memorial will be dedicated to C. S. Lewis, one of the great minds of the twentieth century. There, on the 50th anniversary of his death, Lewis will take his place in the Poets’ Corner, alongside such greats as John Keats, William Blake, and T. S. Eliot.

 Though C. S. Lewis himself has been gone for half a century, the power of his words and his ideas continues to affect generations. Join us in the month of November as we commemorate his life and his works. Follow our “50 Fans, 50 Years Later” campaign and read what C. S. Lewis and The Chronicles of Narnia meant to such luminaries John Boyne, Tracey Chevalier, Eoin Colfer, Neil Gaiman, Gregory Maguire, Lemony Snicket, Katherine Paterson, and 43 more.

 The 50 quotes will be released as part of a worldwide anniversary tribute through The Chronicles of Narnia Facebook fan page, the C. S. Lewis Facebook fan page, @Official Narnia, and @CSLewis from November 1 through November 22. You can see the complete collection of quotes as they’re published on the 50 Fans, 50 Years Later Pinterest Board. What does The Chronicles of Narnia mean to you or to your children?
