You're Invited: Tolkien Reading Day Event 3/27

Are you a full-fledged Tolkienite, or just in the hobbit of seeing the movies based on the works of J.R.R. Tolkien? Either way, we're Tolkien to you! Mark your calendar for Monday, March 27th for an all-day Tolkien Reading Day event at the Blagg-Huey Library on the Denton campus of TWU.

From 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the library's Joyce Thompson Lecture Hall (room 101, the first door to the right as you enter the building), student and staff volunteers will be reading passages from The Hobbit and other Tolkien works. Want to participate? Just sign up at the Circulation Desk (on the first floor) and pick a time slot or two. We'll supply the books. Feel like listening? Just show up and find a seat. Questions? Contact Joslyn Sandlin (JSandlin2@twu.edu).

Tolkien Reading Day, an annual March event, was organized in 2003 by The Tolkien Society to encourage the author's fans to celebrate and promote Tolkien's life and works by gathering to read passages from his books.
