After a brief glimpse into the wondrous, chaotic world of how BiblioFiles episodes are planned, the CenterForLit crew lands on talking about C.S. Lewis’s fabulous essay, “On Three Ways of Writing for Children.” The main questions include: What is the purpose of children’s literature? What is a good story for children? And why should an author of children’s literature set out to write in the first place?
