C. S. Lewis and the ‘Wee’ County of Louth
Before his death aged 64 on November 22, 1963, the writer C.S. Lewis expressed a concern to his secretary Walter Hooper that sales of his books would most likely decline or even vanish shortly after his passing. Almost 60 years and 200 million copies later Lewis’s fears have proved groundless. In many ways, thanks to his faithful secretary Hooper, Lewis’s works of Christian apologetics and English Literature as well as his less well-known science fiction have never gone out of print while the classical children’s stories about Narnia and Aslan keep him permanently in the public eye.
