“This, so far as I can see it, is the specific value or good of literature considered as Logos; it admits us to experiences other than our own.”

— C. S. Lewis, An Experiment in Criticism

In the spirit of our namesake and in conjunction with Wolverine Farm’s creative residencies, Perelandra is honored to sponsor a monthly Reader-in-Residence. The goal of the residency is to celebrate reading as an art eo ipso—in and of itself—that transcends cultural boundaries and expands creative community. The reader agrees to be regularly present in the bookshop during their term, cultivating their literary interests and extending references to others.
