Marquette University Tolkien Project Can't Post

Late last Fall, I posted about my adventure to the Raynor Library at Marquette University where I participated in a collection of interviews of what Tolkien means to me. The project is the brainchild of the Library's Archivist, William Fliss. There's still plenty of time to join in and become a part of the collective ;)

Here's a link to the TORn Homepage article with links and a full explanation of what this is all about.

Tolkien Fandom Oral History Project

Bill Fliss sends greetings :D [In reply to] Can't Post

He's finding ways to work around the Covid 19 virus and will be starting live presentations of Tolkien's works in Spring 2021. However, he is ready to arrange online interviews right now :D His enthusiasm is infectious... and encouraging!
