I'll be talking at Norwich University on Monday, October 31st at noon, about J.R.R. Tolkien's experiences during World War I and how it impacted his works. I'll be there along with Professor Gina Logan.
Here's the description:
Please join us October 31st at noon at the Sullivan Museum and History Center for a presentation by adjunct English faculty Gina Logan and Andrew Liptak, (M'09) as they discuss the influence of Tolkien's service in World War I on his life and writings including the portrayal of the conflict in the Lord of the Rings, and Tolkien's description of Frodo and Sam's journey through Mordor as a reflection of his memories of combat. Light Lunch served, free and open to the public.
