'J.R.R Tolkien first introduced the vast mythological world of Middle Earth in his classic tale for all ages, The Hobbit, published on this day in 1937. From the gentle rural landscape of The Shire, a band of hobbits, wizards, elves and dwarves set out on an great and timeless quest.

In the run up to the release of part one of Peter Jackson’s filmed version of the tale, join a celebration of this fabulous and hugely influential book: with readings, conversation and special guests.'

Anyone bored like me & feel like speculating wildly on who the "special guests" might be?

Tom Shippey and John Garth, perhaps?

What fascinated me was that already 1,721 people on FB have liked this event. The Return of the Ring has only 734 likes so far.

Don't you remember that band of Wizards in The Hobbit, & their quest? --it was great! You must have been reading the story in one of those earlier impressions you have...
