Some of you know Rilian studied at Oxford University through a study abroad programme almost four years ago. Today he interviews two fans of Lewis (including NarniaWebber LadyLiln) who talk about how studying in Oxford has been more than they ever dreamed as they discuss what it’s like literally walking the same paths as C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien. For information on the programme, go to http://www.summitoxford.org or “Like” their Facebook page. UPDATE: A new video featuring Franklin along with his CS Lewis tutor, Dr. Michael Ward, is available here on YouTube.
