Syracuse Tolkien Reading Day II

March 28, 2009 at 7:59 pm by xoanon  - 

Sean Kirst from The Post-Standard writes: Another Tolkien Reading Day is upon us, as discussed in today’s column – attached in “extended reading.” We’re holding this year’s version Sunday at 1 p.m. on the second floor of The Palace Theatre in Eastwood. Admission is free, and the focus is participation, not fundraising, especially in these tough financial times. But if you want to throw any change into a hat, all proceeds will go toward a couple of local literacy projects: The Ted Grace Reading Grove, and a GED program at the Learning Place. We’ll be reading from “The Hobbit,” and we’ll go for as long as everyone holds out. Right now, we’re thinking three pages per reader. The point is certainly to honor Tolkien, but it’s also to recall the sheer joy of reading. Retired English professor Tony Annunziata, the focus of today’s column, recently noted that Tolkien exemplifies the power of reading: His work demands an intense creative process for anyone who flips open the books, and the payoff is a lifetime bond.
