I am a student at the University of Georgia in Athens, GA and I thought that I would pass along some information in case other fans around here wanted something interesting to go to without having to drive too far. ;) We have a Tolkien Society on campus and I have just received this latest information:
I'd like to remind you of the lecture this Tuesday, November 5 at 4:15 pm in the UGA Chapel: Thomas Shippey, noted Tolkien scholar and author of "J.R.R. Tolkien: Author of the Century." Here is a link to the story in today's Athens Banner-Herald. [More]
Professor Shippey will also be at Barnes and Noble tonight at 8 pm to discuss and autograph his book.
Also, this Wednesday, November 6, 7 pm at Borders on Alps Rd: National Scottish Harp Champion Tracie Brown will perform "Music of Middle Earth" -- songs and tunes from and inspired by "The Lord of the Rings", and lead a Tolkien Trivia Contest (kid's and adult's divisions). She will also appear at 7 pm Thursday, November 7 at Borders in the Mall of Georgia.
