David served as a linguistic consultant and wrote dialogue and songs in Elvish for the Lord of the Rings movies. He is the author of the recently released book A Gateway to Sindarin: A Grammar of an Elvish Language from JRR Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings.
As a prelude to David’s program the three Lord of the Rings films will be shown in the Community Room, free of charge on three consecutive evenings.
