Clive Staples Lewis, was born in Belfast, Ireland (now Northern Ireland) on November 29, 1898. He didn't care for his name and instead went the name "Jack".
He was a teacher and an author who wrote a great deal of books. Some of his more popular works include the Narnia Chronicles and the
Screwtape Letters. Because C.S. Lewis was a Christian, many of his books were about Christianity in some way.
C.S. Lewis was also the college friend of J.R.R. Tolkien and they both inspired each other's work.
C.S. Lewis died on November 22, 1963, which was the same day President Kennedy was assassinated.
