Clive Staples Lewis was born in Belfast on the 29th November 1898. Lewis wrote over 30 novels in his lifetime which included the well known and loved Chronicles of Narnia. His book Spirits in bondage, was the first of his literary novels published in 1919, and under the pseudonym Clive Hamilton.
In the 1930’s C.S Lewis joined a group of people who called themselves ‘the Inklings’, which consisted of intellectuals and writers. Other famous names from the group included J.RR Tolkien.
In 2016, Belfast paid tribute to the writer by opening the C.S Lewis Square, which is a dedicated public space for events and activities. At the square there are amazing sculptures by Irish artist Maurice Harron, all based on characters from The Witch, the Lion and the Wardrobe.
