This weekend begins the Tolkien inspired event Festival in the Shire in the United Kingdom. I hope that anyone close enough to Wales is at least considering going. For those lucky enough to be attending I have to say, I’m extremely jealous.
There is a conference that has our friend Dr. Corey Olsen (The Tolkien Professor) as a speaker. He mentioned the Festival in the Shire in our interview with him on Episode 36. Be sure to read his journal entry on the site.There is art, books memorabilia and a variety of entertainment!
I dearly hope something like this is available in the States someday. This type of event I would positively love to attend!
