65 years ago today: C.S. Lewis’ ‘The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe’ was published

65 years ago today, readers were transported to Narnia with the Pevensie children for the first time as C.S. Lewis’ “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” hit the shelves of bookstores in England. The classic children’s fantasy novel was published on October 16, 1950. It was the first of Lewis’ seven Narnia books to be released and to be written, though it became volume 2 in recent editions of the series, sequenced chronologically according to Narnia history, putting “The Magician’s Nephew” first. Lewis wrote “Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe” over the course of 10 years, at the same time his dear friend J.R.R. Tolkien was working on “The Lord of the Rings.” The two Brits frequently met on Monday mornings to talk about writing. Ultimately, though, Tolkien was critical of the Narnia books. There’s much speculation as to why the “Hobbit” scribe had a negative reaction to his friend’s fantasy series. »
