      The Chronicle of Higher Education is sponsoring a live,
      online discussion about the allegations in "Sleuthing C.S. Lewis:
      More Light in the Shadowlands," by Kathryn Lindskoog, which
      is about to be published by the Mercer University Press. The
      book charges that several literary and theological works attributed
      to Lewis are, in fact, the products of systematic forgery -- allegations
      that are vigorously disputed by other experts on Lewis. The cover
      story in the new issue of The Chronicle explores the controversy
      and its significance in terms of literary studies, and the legacy
      of C.S. Lewis.

      In the discussion, Joe Christopher, a Lewis expert who wrote
      the introduction to the new book, will respond to comments and
      questions about the dispute. The discussion will take place
      online on Thursday, July 19 at 1 p.m. U.S. Eastern time.

      The Chronicle invites members of this list to read the article,
      to join the discussion, and to post questions or comments
      for Mr. Christopher (advance questions are encouraged
      and may be posted now) at:

      http://chronicle.com/colloquylive/2001/07/cslewis/chat.php3

      A transcript of the discussion will be posted at this address
      after the chat is over.

        I've seen KL's comments on it (avail. on request); she liked the treatment
        but points out a few inaccuracies, such as Hooper saying she'd "made a
        living" out of him.
