Surprised by Casey: A Tribute to C.S. Lewis

now to attend Seattle Pacific University’s much-anticipated summer island getaway that blends food, fun and food for thought. This year’s Casey Alumni Weekend, August 15–17, commemorates 40 years since the death of Christian literary great, C.S. Lewis. “Surprised by Casey: A 40th Anniversary Tribute to C.S. Lewis” features readings, storytelling and prayers dear to the heart of the man who penned The Chronicles of Narnia and other beloved works.

Alumni of all ages and their families will enjoy a wide range of activities at Casey Conference Center, from swimming and beachcombing to crafts for the kids and a delectable salmon barbecue. The Lewis legacy will be shared in presentations by SPU Lewis-philes on the life and literature of a man of faith and letters, and in theatrical performances by Potluck Productions.
