The Verum Fabula Fellowship is the first ever Wilmore based C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien society!

Meeting in a historic downtown Wilmore coffee roastery called Drinklings (yes, named after Lewis and Tolkien's Inklings) this group came together in the summer of 2019 by through Wes Mullins and Randall Hardman to explore ideas of philosophy, theology, literature, art, and poetry in the same vein the original Oxford dons did at the Eagle and Child more than 60 years ago: to better themselves and to better society through the shared bonds of thinking and creating. 

The group is a small so that it remains closed and intimate but if this is something you are interested in being a part of feel absolutely free to join us for an evening and listen in or email or
