Lewis and the Catholic Church, Literary Converts, and Solzhenitsyn: A Soul in Exile. He hosted two 13-part series about Shakespeare on EWTN, and has written and presented documentaries on the Catholicism of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. He has participated and lectured at a wide variety of international literary events at major colleges and universities in the United States, Canada, Britain, and many countries throughout Europe, Africa and South America.
