    Q: Please offer any other suggestions, critiques, or praise.
    A: I attended the David Armstrong breakout. It was really dense and I wonder if it wasn’t a bit too much for many of the attenders. There’s no doubt that he wrote a really good paper but it was difficult to listen to.

    Also, I sat with two acquaintances during the first session who were hoping for a lot more Inklings. I love Ralph Wood and enjoyed his talks but there could have been more on Lewis, Tolkien, etc.

    I love the Inkling fest but I thought it might be good to keep these two points in mind. Thanks for doing it.

    Q: Please offer any other suggestions, critiques, or praise.
    A: I think the idea and purpose of the festival (and lectures) is fantastic and needs to be continued. I’d just like to see more happen to actually build relationships that overcome the aspects of our religious identities that divide us.

    A: Although I think fall would be a good because of the heat I also realize that trying to do fall and then plan a symposium for January might be a little to much, so Summer will still be OK with me.
