Tolkien Reading Day 2021 - The TolkienGuide Edition

Mar 18 - By Urulókë

Arise now, arise, Riders of Théoden!
Dire deeds awake, dark is it eastward.
Let horse be bridled, horn be sounded!
Forth Eorlingas!

Art by Norloth, used with permission



With the permission of HarperCollins and the Tolkien Estate, we shall once more go into the breach with fantastic day of hosting wonderful readings of Tolkien's works from guests around the world. Last year we hosted a fifteen hour marathon session. Plans are being worked on for this year as well - perhaps not as epic as last year, but it will be fun and certainly less "last minute". The Tolkien Society in partnership with the Centre for Fantasy and the Fantastic will also have events throughout the day that our event will be scheduling around, and news of other Tolkien Reading Day events will also be shared and promoted.

As like last year, the live streaming event will primarily take place on Discord, a wonderful service for audio and text chatting, with other options available for those unfamiliar or unwilling to use Discord - but the chat room is a lot of fun, so please join if you can! If you just want to listen, the live stream should be available on YouTube, thanks to the excellent support once again from the German Tolkien Society (Deutsche Tolkien Gesellschaft e.V.)

Discord link for chatting, listening in, or reading: https://discord.gg/APKU2SWj

If you would like to schedule a time to read something, please contact me through private message and we will work it out. Open mic readings will take place all day long as well if you just want to drop in.

Guest readers who have volunteered to join the muster so far are:
  • Chad High
  • Tom Hillman
  • Elise Trudel Cedeño
  • Dr. Sara Brown
  • Dr. Una McCormack
  • Dr. Luke Shelton
  • Marcel Aubron-Bülles
  • John Garth
  • Carl Hostetter
  • Jason Fisher
  • Brian Sibley
  • Clifford "Quickbeam" Broadway
  • James Tauber
  • Patrick M. Hausen
  • Matt Graf - "The Nerd of the Rings"
  • Alan Sisto from The Prancing Pony Podcast
  • Shawn Marchese from The Prancing Pony Podcast
  • Ted Nasmith - amazing artist
  • Andrew “Trotter” Ferguson
  • and hopefully more to come

Most readers will be at specific times during the day, so hopefully everyone around the world will be able to enjoy at least part of the event. As with last year, the Estate and publisher are being extremely kind in allowing for these public performances of Tolkien's copyrighted materials for a live streaming event. The event will not be recorded or available after broadcast.

Scheduling for March 25th Tolkien Reading Day Event



The times shown in the calendar below are approximate - the readings will not all be exactly half an hour each! There will be gaps for open mic readings, some readers may run long, and we will all just have fun and do the best we can. If you are interested in reading, please let me know. Names and reading materials are being added constantly as everyone settles in and the schedule comes together.

New editions of Galician Hobbit and Lord of the Rings released

Mar 17 - By Urulókë

Sushi Books has released Galician translations of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings in new cloth covers with new gold foil designs on them, replacing the original leather bound editions from 2018 (H) and 2019 (LotR). The cover/binding is the only change from the prior editions, but I must say I really like the new style personally. The shopping cart system does not handle international (outside of Spain) purchases for shipping, please contact them directly to arrange as needed.

Adapting Tolkien - Peter Roe Series XX

Mar 6 - By Urulókë

Luna Press and The Tolkien Society are releasing Adapting Tolkien - Proceedings of the 2020 Tolkien Society seminar, and volume XX in the Peter Roe series.

adapting-tolkien.jpeg


Released Date 12 April 2021

Peter Roe Series XX

Hosted online, the Tolkien Society 2020 seminar sought to explore how J.R.R. Tolkien’s legacy partly relies on the continued adaption of his works, characters, and languages. It offered insights into a range of artistic adaptions and evaluated how the tangible result expands the Tolkien fanbase and readership while cultivating a love and appreciation of Tolkien through the adaptor’s creative vision. It further examined the ways in which Tolkien’s creations have been interwoven into the very fabric of our primary world.

His words no longer simply exist on the page, they are transformed in our minds and are cast out into the stars. They inspire new universes and invite fresh interpretations from across the globe.

Published under the auspices of the Society’s Peter Roe Memorial Fund, this proceedings features a collection of six papers delivered at the Tolkien Society 2020 Online seminar.

Contents



  • Introduction, Will Sherwood
  • The First Age Materials: Christopher Tolkien’s Greatest Task, Cami D. Agan
  • The other illustrated Silmarillion: Francis Mosley for the Folio Society, Marie Bretagnolle
  • Elvish as She is Filmed: The Adaption of the Elvish Language in Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings, Dr. Andrew Higgins
  • "I Heard the Sword's Song, and it Sang to Me": Adapting Tolkien in the World of Heavy Metal, Brian Egede-Pedersen
  • Is Adapting Tolkien (Mis)Remembering Tolkien?, Mina D. Lukić
  • Adapting Tolkien Beyond Arda, or, How to Navigate the Political Minefield of the International Astronomical Union in Order to Name Features on Titan, Pluto, and Charon After Middle-earth, Kristine Larsen

Really interesting article from Brian Sibley about the illustrations for the radio series, very pleased that Brian managed to acquire most of the original artwork from Eric.
