Middle Earth Meets Orlando (The City)
Attention all free peoples of Middle Earth! Just as Gandalf sought out the identity of the One Ring in the library at Minas Tirith so can you discover your true fellowship at the Orlando Public Library. Begin your preparation for the final leg of the journey with an afternoon of all things Middle Earth. Event features:
The event is on Sunday, December 14th from 1:00 to 4:00 at the Orlando Public Library, 101 E. Central Blvd Orlando, FL 32828.
1:00 “Prancing Pony Brag Meet”- Secure a table at the Prancing Pony to display your most enviable LOTR goods.
2:00 “Free Peoples of Middle Earth Fashion Show”- Up for some healthy competition? Come decked out in your Middle Earth garb and try for the title of “best dressed”.
2:30 “Hobbits in Hollywood”- “Shire” your thoughts about the Lord of the Rings books and films. How faithful to the movies were the books? What underlying themes course through these time-honored stories? Would Tolkien have approved of the films? The answers to these questions are what inquiring minds want to know!
3:00 Lore Challenge- Do you have the heart of the hobbit, the erudition of the elf, and the mettle of men? If so, then prove your valor at the trivia table to determine how well you really know Middle Earth.
4:00 Special presentation by Dr. Jerome Donnelly, professor of English literature with a specialization in Tolkien, at the University of Central Florida.
And much, much more! Participate or come enjoy the company of fellow Ringers all afternoon.
