Magical places

While in Chicago last Saturday I skipped out on the morning conference session to drive Wheaton College. It was nice to see old stomping grounds (where I did my doctorate). But the highlight was taking a friend to the Wade Center which houses the papers of CS Lewis, JRR Tolkien, Dorothy Sayers, George McDonald (and 3 other literary greats whose names I’m forgetting right now). Below is a phone pic of a most magical place, Lewis’ actual wardrobe. You can’t help but reach through the coats to see if the back wall is there or not. You can see a note on the door that warns that the Wade Center is not responsible for lost children who enter the wardrobe.
