Washington Centerville, OH Library celebrates Tolkien Week
#1
[indent]Tolkien Week begins Sunday, September 21 and ends on Saturday, September 27. The week is dedicated to the ambitious writings of J.R.R. Tolkien. If you have never read any of his books, The Hobbit is a great one to start with prior to reading the vast Lord of the Rings series. Then dive in to the series that has been revered, copied and even adapted for the silver screen. The series starts with The Fellowship of the Ring, followed by The Two Towers and ends with The Return of the King. Tolkien has many other works out there and the stories can be quite complicated. That is why there are numerous companion pieces which can be helpful to the reader. The Tolkien Companion by J.E.A. Taylor, Tolkien and the Invention of Myth edited by Jane Chance and A Tolkien Compass by Jared Lobdell are several such guides. Perhaps you are looking for works that celebrate Tolkien's vast collection of stories and his life. A Tolkien treasury and Tolkien: A Cultural Phenomenon honor the works of this illustrious author. Whether you are reading Tolkien's work for the first time or revisiting his world, check out some of these books throughout the week![/indent]

I've already posted my annual rant about September 22 so all I want to say is that I hope any Tolkien fans in that part of Ohio take the time to visit the library and help them celebrate Tolkien Week.
