Susan Cooper to Give 2017 Tolkien Lecture

This year’s for the J.R.R. Tolkien Lecture on Fantasy Literature at Pembroke College in Oxford will be Susan Cooper. I suspect that most of you know who she is, but just in case there’s a clue to the left.

As usual, the lecture will take place in the Pichette Auditorium at Pembroke. The date is Thursday, April 27th and the start time is 6:30pm. Attendance is free, but you will need to book a place via Eventbrite.

I’m hoping to be there. The end of April is getting very busy but it looks like it will all work out. Hopefully I will see a few of you there.

For more details see the lecture’s website.

Update: The folks at Pembroke tell me that they plan to have the lecture available as a video on their website a few days after the event. The 2015 and 1016 lectures, featuring Lev Grossman and Terri Windling, are up there, together with one by Dimitra Fimi and Andrew Higgins about Tolkien’s language creation that I really must watch.
