Podcast: Patti Callahan Henry – Weaving Fact and Fiction to Create Joy

Literary Latte S1 E11 – Patti Callahan Henry – Much like readers, authors don’t always stick to a single genre. The siren call of a particular person from history can inspire anyone – as it did with Patti, a New York Times bestselling author with a dozen contemporary novels under her belt. Patti (writing as Patti Callahan in this new novel) has written her first work of historical fiction, inspired by the life of Joy Davidman who became the wife of C. S. Lewis – the author, essayist and Christian apologist best known for his classic children’s series – The Chronicles of Narnia. Their marriage was immortalized in the film Shadowlands and in Lewis’s memoir A Grief Observed. Their relationship grew from a dialogue about faith, writing, and poetry into a deep friendship and a timeless love story. It’s the focus of Becoming Mrs. Lewis as told from Joy’s point of view.
