(early morning coffee out around 6:30 a.m.) Our breakfast buffet is served from 7:30 - 8:30 a.m. in the Assembly Inn Dining Room. Is breakfast your favorite meal of the day? If so, you're in for a treat this week! Breakfast options change daily, incorporating lots of your favorites... biscuits and gravy, sausage, bacon, scrambled eggs, grits, hash browns, French toast, pancakes, oatmeal (not the packaged kind either), and lots of others. Standard offerings include fresh fruit, cereal, yogurt, granola, baked pastries, orange juice (and another juice option). Fresh coffee or hot tea will start your morning off right!
During the early morning course, we will explore Lewis’s early life, especially his imaginative life, including the worlds of Boxen and Animal-Land that he and his brother, Warren, invented, mapped, and peopled. We'll have a mid-morning refreshment break and then return to class for the lecture and discussion about the gradual erosion of his Christian faith and his embracing instead of “northernness”—that is, a fascination with Norse mythology.
Lunch is served from 12:30 - 1:30 in the Assembly Inn Dining Room
Afternoon course will trace Lewis's imaginative life during WWI and through his days as an undergraduate and later fellow at Oxford University. 3:30 Walk Around Montreat (guided tour of grounds) or free time
Dinner will be served from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the Assembly Inn Dining Room
