Happy Birthday to Madeleine L’Engle and C.S. Lewis!

Thanks to Martin Stillion for pointing out that today is the birthday of two writers whose work has been an inspiration to me since childhood.

I wish I had been able to present them with copies of Auralia’s Colors in person, as a gesture of gratitude and evidence that their testimonies, ideas, and stories have changed my life dramatically.

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.
