Today is the Tolkien Society’s International Tolkien Reading Day Celebration, which this year the theme is friendship.
The Tolkien Society has put together a page of videos from Tolkien Society trustees and Tolkien Scholars reading passages that cover this years theme:
John Garth, Dr Mark Atherton, Dr Dimitra Fimi, Dr Stuart D. Lee, and Dr Corey Olsen for take part in the video series.
Below is “John Garth, author of Tolkien and the Great War, reading G.B. Smith’s letter to Tolkien for Tolkien Reading Day 2015.”
In 2013, to celebrate Bilbo and Frodo’s Birthday, otherwise known as Hobbit Day, Myth Ink Books Editor in Chief and New York Tolkien Conference Organizer Jessica Burke read from The Hobbit. Here is her reading of The Gathering of the Clouds.
