I’ve been gathering books specifically to sell at the retreat for some months now, and have amassed an inventory I’m really excited about.
Of course, I’ll be stocking classic titles by C.S. Lewis, as well as a number of well-known biographies and secondary works about Jack and his writings. A few titles by and about other Inklings, influencers, and friends – J.R.R. Tolkien, Charles Williams, George MacDonald, Dorothy L. Sayers – will also be available.
In addition, I’ll be offering a number of new works of Lewis scholarship which have recently been released. Several of the retreat speakers and breakout session leaders have published books this year, which will be featured in the bookstore: The Surprising Imagination of C.S. Lewis by Jerry Root and Mark Neal, Discussing Mere Christianity by Devin Brown, Joy by Abigail Santamaria, and 75 Masterpieces Every Christian Should Know by Terry Glaspey. Earlier works by some of these authors will also be available.
Additionally, I’ll offer books by other retreat speakers past and present, and other friends of the C.S. Lewis Foundation, including Lael Arrington, Kevin Belmonte, Bruce Edwards, Diana Glyer, Malcolm Guite, Andrew Lazo, and Charlie Starr.
As in previous years, the bookstore will also carry poetry, memoirs, literary anthologies, and books on the writing process and the power of story.
Finally, this year for the first time I am bringing in a small selection of used books, ranging from bargain bin finds to collectible editions.
If you’d like me to reserve a copy of a certain book for you, or if there’s a title you’d like me to try to find for you, please contact me at Becka@booksbybecka.com
Hoping to see you soon!
