The Anselm Society is funded by local member churches, a few sponsors, and (mostly) our patrons and member artist dues. We are very close to reaching our funding goal for calendar year 2016--but we need a little more help!

The weekend of April 9, we will have an opportunity to spend time with Inklings and art collaboration expert Diana Glyer, author of the new book "Bandersnatch: C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, and the Creative Collaboration of the Inklings."

To put these two things together, we've created a special offer. Join as a patron or become a member artist* by noon on April 7, and in addition to our many amazing membership benefits, you'll receive some extra perks!

  • Shire patrons ($10/month or $100/year): a signed copy of Bandersnatch!
  • Rohan patrons or higher ($25/month or $250/year and up): that, plus an invitation to join Diana Glyer and the Arts Guild for dinner/drinks downtown on Friday, April 8 from 7 to 9pm!

*Member artist applications are subject to review by the Arts Guild leadership. An application does not guarantee admission.

**Are you a Shire-level patron already, but want to up your giving amount? Now's a great chance. Visit your giving dashboard at, login, and you can manage your donation amount!
