Unfinished Tales discussion sign-up Can't Post

Hey all reading room readers. I HAVE MADE THE SCHEDULE. Wink

For those who have not kept up with our previous discussions (and poll) about what to read together next, we have decided to move on to Unfinished Tales after Brethil's discussion of Letter #131. That is meant to go for four weeks, so we'll kick off the Unfinished Tales discussion during the week of Sunday, October 13.

The decision was made to skip the "Narn i Chin Hurin" portion of UT during this read-through and to discuss The Children of Hurin after finishing UT. This will allow us to take our time on that book without completely interrupting our UT discussion. So for the time being, we will just focus on the tale "Of Tuor and his Coming to Gondolin". Because I took it upon myself to get a schedule put together, I decided that I would break this section down into five smaller discussions. There is certainly enough material to discuss in each, so unless anyone has any reason why these five sections don't work, this is what we'll go with.

Here are the sections I have chosen. I have named them for ease of reference.

October 13: The Wanderings of Tuor This section obviously begins at the beginning and goes through Tuor's early life, meeting with Gelmir & Arminas, and his stay at Cirith Ninniach. It ends with the phrase, "But he knew not that the wind came fresh from the Great Sea."
October 20: The Visitation at Vinyamar This section encompasses Tuor's time at Nevrast and his conversation with Ulmo. It ends with the phrase, "And Ulmo was gone, and the sea was in tumult, as the wild waves of Ossë rode against the walls of Nevrast."
October 27: Voronwë Aranwion This section encompasses Tuor's meeting with Voronwe and Voronwe's story. It ends after Voronwe finishes his account with the phrase, "Then Voronwë fell silent; for night had come, and the stars shone white and cold."
November 3: The Journey of Tuor and Voronwe This section contains, obviously, the journey of Tuor to Gondolin. It ends with the phrase, "But Tuor said: ‘Forebode no more. Death in the wild is certain; and death at the Gate is yet in doubt to me, for all your words. Lead me still on!’"
November 10: The Gates of Gondolin This is the last section and goes through the end of the unfinished tale Wink

So now I need discussion leaders! Anyone is welcome to do so. If you've never lead before, now's your chance! All that's needed is to reply to this post. Thanks to all involved, and to all volunteers! I'm looking forward to the discussions. Smile

'Twas in the Land of Willows that I heard th'unfathomed breath
Of the Horns of Ylmir calling - and shall hear them till my death.
