April "Silmarillion" conference in NYC cancelled. Can't Post

The conference celebrating the 30th Anniversary of The Silmarillion, which was to have been held at St. Francis College in Brooklyn on Apr. 20-22, has been cancelled. This was announced today by the sponsoring organization, "Heren Istarion", the NE Tolkien Society, on their website. (The conference was previously mentioned on TORN here and here.)

Too bad. I know at least one TORNado submitted an abstract.

Detail from earliest version of Thror's MapTolkien Illustrated! Jan. 29-May 20: Visit the Reading Room to discuss art by John Howe, Alan Lee, Ted Nasmith and others, including Tolkien himself.

Feb. 26-Mar. 4: Fan Artistry.

Tolkien Reading Day (March 25) [In reply to] Can't Post

Even though the Silmarillion conference is off, Heren Istarion (the NE Tolkien Society) is trying to get a Tolkien Reading Day event in the New York area on March 25. Details on the homepage at


I would like to go, but have to be at a meeting in Baltimore a few days later, so it won't happen for me.

<i>Tolkien Reading Day Event Sunday March 25th 2007
The Northeast Tolkien Society is holding its own Tolkien Reading Day event, and have selected two possible locales. A poll for readers and potential attendees is available to your right. Please vote now for time is limited and we must make reservations at either location.
a) Frodo's Restaurant. (Pleasantville, NY) We held a lovely, small intimate event here last year and it turned out wonderful. If this turns out to be the location of Tolkien Reading Day, we would like to hear of any driving volunteers.</i>I go to Pace University, this place is about 5-10 minutes away, and soooooooo yummy. It's pretty small and gets noisy even with only a few tables full. I think there may have been 1 or more TORn moots there...? I'm not sure I can make it on the 25th as I will be home for spring break then and possibly working (oh, the joys of retail). It's as good a place as any for a moot, food wise.

I don't know... [In reply to] Can't Post

if anyone from TORN is actually going, but if you're interested, you should definitely visit the website of Heren Istarion to vote for your choice.

Mar. 5-11: Tolkien's "Visions, Myths and Legends".

Since we've posted about it here [In reply to] Can't Post

This is the location for the Reading Day on March 25 in NYC (though I will be nowhere even remotely close to that part of the US!)

It is our hope this finds you all well. This Sunday, March 25th 2007 is
International Tolkien Reading Day and in New York City the Northeast
Tolkien Society will be holding a 3pm gathering at Fiddlesticks Pub and
56 Greenwich Avenue, New York, NY 10011 as seen on herenistarion.org.
We invite one and all to come and enjoy an afternoon with us as we share
reading our favorite passages with one another, great discussion and
indulge our hobbit-ish appetites with fine food of Fiddlesticks.
If you seek to add to your Tolkien Library we will have 4 books
autographed by Alan Lee, courtesy of Houghton Mifflin, up for grabs for
our free raffle to whet your appetite toward the release of the Children
of Hurin. Also on hand we will have, for a society fundraiser, several
items i.e. Tolkien related books, Sideshow Weta LOTR busts and numerous
other items.

Sounds fun
