The Marion E. Wade Center presents a talk by Dr. K. Alan Snyder of Southeastern University and author of America Discovers C. S. Lewis on Thursday, October 18, 2018 at 7 p.m. in Bakke Auditorium.

Dr. Snyder will be sharing the results of his research into C. S. Lewis’s reception in the United States and influence on Americans, including such questions as “What did C. S. Lewis really think of Americans?,” “Why did Chad Walsh think Lewis was a writer worthy of an intellectual biography?,” and “Why do Americans seem to appreciate Lewis’s works more than his fellow Brits.”

Dr. Snyder is a professor of history at Southeastern University in Lakeland, Florida, who has taught in higher education for over 30 years. He holds a B.A. from Purdue University, an M. A. in History from Old Dominion and a Ph.D. in History from The American University. America Discovers C. S. Lewis is his fifth book.

This lecture will take place in the Wade Center’s Bakke Auditorium and is free and open to the public. The Wade Center is located at 351 Lincoln Ave. on the northwest corner of campus at the intersection of Washington St. and Lincoln Ave. For more information, contact the Wade Center at 630.752.5908 or
