Colin Havard: An Inklings Son Remembers JRR Tolkien & CS Lewis

Written by My Middle-earth member Ian.

Tuesday, March 20, 2012 at 7pm CST (-6 GMT), at St. Louis Community College, St. Louis, MO

Mark Colin Havard is the son of Dr. Robert Humphrey Havard of Oxford.  Dr. Robert Havard was the personal physician of JRR Tolkien and CS Lewis, as well as a member of the famous Inklings fellowship.  Mark Colin Havard occasionally attended Inklings sessions along with his father.  His recollections of those men and those meetings, house-sitting for Lewis and Kilns, and other anecdotes comprise this evening of literary reminiscence.

This discussion will be presented with Michael Foster as interlocutor.  Professor Foster, the North American  representative of the International Tolkien Society, teaches a course on Tolkien at Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois.
