Michael Ward Visit

The Rev. Dr. Michael Ward, author of Planet Narnia, visited us in early April. His insights into The Chronicles of Narnia are amazing. We had a very good time together. Below are the main events which were held.

Dr. Michael Ward talking to students at Covenant College. From left to right, flanking Dr. Ward, are Aaron Messner, College Chaplain, Dr. Debbie Higgins of Southern Adventist University, and Dr. Pat Ralston of Covenant.

Wednesday, 9 April - Dr. Ward arrived in the area and spoke at Southern Adventist University. We had an overflow crowd - 200+ - at the auditorium - it was great! Lots of conversation and book signing afterward - sold out! By the way - Michael's book is in its third printing already!
Thursday, 10 April - Dr. Ward was at Covenant College today: Michael gave an interesting lecture on medieval cosmology in a class and then an inspiring message in the chapel.
Friday, 11 April - At Rock Point Books. Book signing began around 6:00 P.M. At 7:00 P.M., Dr. Ward gave his Planet Narnia presentation. After 8:15 P.M. or so, he signed more books. There were about 78 people in attendance! Great turn out - great meeting!
