On this date, May 11, 1926, C. S. Lewis and J. R. R.Tolkien had their first chat in length. They would later form the Inklings and write some of the most beloved and prized books of literature.
If you have never read anything by Tolkien, you must read the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. And if you have never read anything by Lewis, well you must read all of his books! Some of my favorites from him include the Chronicles of Narnia and Mere Christianity.
