Each year the Tolkien Society celebrates Tolkien Reading Day on March 25th (Sauron’s final downfall). Wellinghall, our smial here in the GTA is meeting up for an afternoon of food, laughter, reading and discussion. If you like Tolkien, consider this an invite to come on down (up or over) and join us. We’ll be meeting at 1.00 this Saturday (March 24) at the Pickle Barrel, Yorkdale Mall (in Toronto). It will also be our first anniversary of smial-hood. 🙂
The group is open to anyone and everyone, of all ages. And you don’t need to be a fanatic or a scholar, although we love those. 😉 In the spirit of the day, what we do is we each select a favourite passage, poem, or song from any of Tolkien’s works and read it. Even our Entings get into the spirit. So, if you’re interested, bookmark your favourite passage(s) and let us know over at the forum so that we can make sure we have enough seats for everyone. Hope to see you there.
