Tolkien presentation in Corpus Christi, Texas — March 3 Can't Post

Hello, Friends, and Happy Leap Day!

I will be giving a presentation at the Art Center in Corpus Christi, this weekend. This is not a free event (the cost is $20), but if you are within a day’s march of the “Texas Riviera”, come out on March 3 at 1:00 PM to hear me speak about J.R.R. Tolkien and source criticism. Short notice, I know, but I am driving more than seven hours to be there; at least you can do the same! I would love to meet some Texas TORnsibs whose paths I haven't crossed yet. I will also have some copies of my book on hand at a 30% discount (the best price you're likely to find) — and if you want them, the autograph and dazzling smile are free!

To register for this event, follow this link. Yes, sadly, they did misspell my name, but they spelled "Tolkien" correctly, and that's the chief thing! Wink

That sounds great! [In reply to] Can't Post

Sadly, I'm far too far away to get there - but I hope it goes really well! And that you meet some other 'sibs whilst you're there. Smile

Enjoying the book! [In reply to] Can't Post

I hope the presentation went well. Texas is too far away for me, but I see you'll be in Kalamazoo this year. Yay! I'm hoping to get that far at least.
