JRR Tolkien The Storyteller’s Story: A 2008 History Lecture Series

This year the UW Alumni Association and UW College of Arts & Sciences are proud to present JRR Tolkien: A Storyteller's Story.

Best known for his Lord of the Rings series, John Ronald Reuel Tolkien was also a highly regarded poet and scholar. In the 2008 History Lecture Series, Professor Robin Stacey will illuminate the fluency and fascination with language, mythology and religion that permeates Tolkien's work. Join us for an exploration of JRR Tolkien beyond Middle Earth - the man, the myths, and the meaning.
