Elen síla lúmenn' omentielvo!
After a 40 year hiatus, jan howard finder chaired the 3rd Conference on Middle-earth on March 26, 2011. It was enjoyed so much, many of the presenters and participants wanted to do it again. As jan said about the 3rd Conference, "How could I resist?"
So, I call you here to speak of J.R.R. Tolkien, his works, criticisms and witicisms,works based on Tolkien and his works, teaching Tolkien in the classroom, the impact of the books on yourself, friends, family, and/or the world, the films and the film industry, the music, the art, the fannish side of this universe and its impact, and lots more.
This is a gathering where you can sit in the Green Dragon and discuss Elvish or Orcish table manners, if they have any. This is a celebration of Middle-earth, and all that it implies.
Welcome! Enjoy the celebration!
