Tolkien at Kalamazoo May 13-16 Can't Post

"Tolkien at Kalamazoo" is a group that sponsors sessions at the International Congress on Medieval Studies at Western Michigan University every year. Among the thousands of people who attend the Congress are the Tolkien people (not all of whom are medievalists!). Here is the schedule of Tolkien events for this year, most of them sponsored by "Tolkien at Kalamazoo" but some others as well. N.E. Brigand is one Tornsib who is on the program, and some of you might recognize Chris Vaccaro, whose students visit the Reading Room once a year. I'll be attending -- anyone else from TORn? Information about the whole conference is available on the Congress website.
