If you find yourself in Memphis this July you will have entered into the classic good news / bad news situation.

The bad news is that it is so hideously, fiendishly hot here now, that your primary mode of transportation will be to swim from place to place in a pool of your own sweat.

The good news, however, is that if your travels have you paddling past midtown, you can get in on Ben Cumming’s new weekly lecture series Further Up and Further In – A Deeper Look at the Chronicles of Narnia.

FurtherEach week for four weeks Ben will explore the different themes and elements of C. S. Lewis’ classic fantasy series.

  • July 1 -Dragons and Dryads: Magic, Myth, and Poetry
    “Eustace had read only the wrong books. They had a lot to say about exports and imports and governments and drains, but they were weak on dragons”
  • July 8 -Loyal as a Badger, valiant as a mouse: Honour and Duty
    “Peter did not feel very brave; indeed, he felt he was going to be sick. But that made no difference to what he had to do. He rushed straight up to the monster and aimed a slash of his sword at its side.”
  • July 15 -Talking Beasts: Coronation & Kingship, Unveiling of Identity
    “something was happening at last”
  • July 22 -A Very Serious Thing: Narnian Warnings
    “But kill me, and the burnings and torturings in these northern lands shall become a tale to frighten the world a thousand years hence. Beware! Beware! Beware! The bolt of Tash falls from above”
