We have accepted a number of fascinating Tolkien programs for our June 13th Conference. We have published a “Programming,” page that will serve as our home for program details and scheduling as we get closer to the conference.
Our Guest of Honor, Janet Brennan Croft, will open the Conference with her talk, and we shall go full into the day’s events. A full day of presentations, panels and music will be available for everyone, aside from other Tolkien themed items we have planned. Our Minstrel Guest of Honor John DiBartolo will send us home in the high spirits as he will conclude the conference with a few songs from his Tolkien/Middle-earth inspired albums
