dreamflower: gandalf at bag end (Read LotR aloud greatest tales by Frodos)


For "International Read Tolkien Day" I'm choosing a passage from The History of the Hobbit which shows how the encounter would have gone with Gollum IF the One Ring had NOT been the One Ring, but merely a magic ring of invisibility with no other particular power...

I had a great time last night, doing the reading at the library, and I had lots of fun last year, reading Roverandom by voice-post, and taking part in [livejournal.com profile] read_lotr_aloud.

So, I thought I'd do it again.

Well, since I was not sure anyone would show up at my reading (besides my husband) I was quite gratified when a girl did show up, right at 6:30.

We talked a while-- she's a student at OSU.

I read two passages from RotK. The one you recommended, [livejournal.com profile] shirebound, in which Sam speaks of stories, and the passage from "The Field of Cormallen" which begins with Sam's awakening and ends with "and tears are the very wine of blessedness".

Then I read an excerpt from "On Fairy Stories", the passage about eucatastrophe. It seems almost a companion piece with the Cormallen passage, where he tells of "joy beyond the walls of the world, poignant as grief."

Then we talked a while. She's familiar with fanfic, though she said she's not read a lot of LotR fanfic-- mostly HP. She usually reads at ff.net, and didn't know about some of the LotR only archives, so I'm going to send her some links.

I would have *liked* a couple more people to show up, but considering that I arranged it on short notice, I will consider it a moderate success.

The DH is already thinking of things we can do next year, bless him!

March 25 is Tolkien Reading Day.

I got up the nerve to volunteer to do a reading at the local library! After a few days of phone tag, I finally talked to the librarian in charge, so March 25, 6:30-7:30, I'll hold a reading event there!

Now I'm really nervous. I don't know if *anyone* will show up-- there aren't many Tolkien fans in this small town...

And I have to decide what to read!

I need some encouragement here, please! And maybe a little advice on spreading the word-- there's no radio or TV station here, and the only paper is a tiny local weekly. I'm wondering if I did the right thing...but it's too late to back out now!

I'm sorry it took so long to update, but I had temporarily mislaid my book! Thank goodness I found it this morning!
