A Book Launch for "Tolkien's Modern Reading"
The Wade Center welcomes Holly Ordway for a virtual book launch of her latest work, "Tolkien’s Modern Reading: Middle-earth Beyond the Middle Ages."

In her book, Dr. Ordway challenges the widely accepted view that Tolkien was dismissive of modern culture, that he read little of modern literature, and that "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings" are fundamentally medieval and nostalgic in their inspiration. In fact, Tolkien read widely and deeply in modern literature, and even named specific titles as sources for and influences on Middle-earth.

At the conclusion of the discussion, three viewers will be chosen to receive a free signed copy of "Tolkien’s Modern Reading," courtesy of Word on Fire.

Feb 25, 2021 07:00 PM in Central Time (US and Canada)
