Helping you find the best books to read

Lewolkien 2021

January 31, 2021

Join Castle Ministries in historic Rugby, TN  once again for encouragement, fellowship, and an opportunity to celebrate the good, the true, and the beautiful in literature. The Lewolkien conference is a small, intimate gathering of book lovers and thinkers to herald the written word. Gather as we discuss books and unite over our admiration of C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien and authors like them.

For the second time, the conference will be held in Rugby TN, a little town rich in literary history. We hope this could be a launching point for you to pick up your next “great read” and beyond. JOIN US for an energetic time of thinking, laughing, and exploring great literature.
