Geneva School of Boerne will host two events in January to promote reading and biblical thinking during Geneva's Book Week.
Louis Markos, Professor of English and scholar in residence at Houston Baptist University, will speak at Geneva's annual Mars Hill Lecture from 6:30 pm to 8pm Sunday, Jan. 19. Markos will speak on a part of his book titled Restoring Beauty: The Good, the True, and the Beautiful in the Writings of C.S. Lewis. Markos is also set to be Geneva's commencement speaker in May.
In addition, Geneva welcomes children's author Sally Lloyd-Jones to interact with and read to grammar school children and families from her stories at 8:30 am on Thursday, Jan. 23. Lloyd-Jones is a British-born children's book writer who has written numerous books including Jesus Storybook Bible. She lives in Manhattan and has been in the United States writing, speaking and traveling since 1989.
There is no admission fee for these events, which are open to the public.
