The 2018 J.R.R. Tolkien at Pembroke College will be given by V.E. (Victoria) Schwab. It is on May 1st. I would say “rush to book”, but the announcement went up yesterday and it is already sold out. Whoa, that’s impressive.
Anyway, there’s a waiting list. Good luck.
While I am on the subject of literary events, I see that Jack Zipes is going to be on a panel at Hay this year. He’s talking to Marina Warner and Philip Pullman about “Tales of Wonder, Magic, Resistance and Hope”.
