Tuesday, September 22, 2020 - 7:00 PM

Through the vision of Tom and Marla Corts, and provided by their generosity of spirit, Orlean Beeson School of Education presents Patti Callahan Henry, as the 2020 Tom and Marla Corts Distinguished Author. Henry  will share insights and stories of inspiration from her book, Becoming Mrs. Lewis, a motivational account of the life of Joy Davidman Lewis, wife of legendary writer C.S. Lewis.

To fully capture and convey the story of Mrs. Lewis, Henry retraced Lewis’s steps from New York to Oxford. Becoming Mrs. Lewis beautifully documents Henry’s extensive research of Lewis’s fascinating life and her unlikely love story.

Henry is a New York Times and USA Today best-selling author of 15 novels. A finalist in the Townsend Prize for Fiction, an Indie Next Pick, an OKRA pick, and a multiple nominee for the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance (SIBA) Novel of the Year, she is a frequent speaker at luncheons, book clubs and women’s groups. She resides in Mountain Brook, Alabama and Bluffton, South Carolina.
