“In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit.”

I am looking for someone to share in an adventure that I am arranging, and it’s very difficult to find anyone.’
I should think so — in these parts! We are plain quiet folk and have no use for adventures. Nasty disturbing uncomfortable things! Make you late for dinner!
― J.R.R. TolkienThe Hobbit

Hail, Fellowship!
A warm welcome to all as we begin our journey towards the 2017 NYC Tolkien Conference.

This year’s conference is a celebration of The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien, arguably one of the most influential fantasy novels of the modern era and recently adapted as a blockbuster feature film trilogy. To celebrate the novel’s 80th anniversary, we will be offering programming to re-examine and illuminate the story for fans old and new.

The Hobbit introduced an immersive world of brave adventurers, unlikely heroes, dazzling treasure troves, ancient magic, forgotten kings, and terrible battles. To read The Hobbit is to be filled with awe. We hope you will join us in marking the importance of such a work.  If you are interested in presenting at this year’s conference, keep an eye on this page for our forthcoming Call for Papers guidelines.

Stay tuned for updates! We will shortly be confirming the event date and location.

Can’t wait? Check out last year’s presentations on our YouTube channel and browse our RedBubble store!
