This summer, The Reading Room launched the very first TORn Amateur Symposium (TAS).  The second series has begun!  The TAS gives TORn members who cannot attend formal Symposiums a chance to participate in some semi-formal and inspired presentations we can all share and discuss.  Here you can find the Fall TAS schedule/abstracts and its first installment here.

In the Pollantir, poster The Grey Elf got us all thinking about how creative Tolkien aficionados are… meaning all of us!!  Come share how Tolkien has inspired you right here.

Want more Hobbit movie news?  Each week, TORn poster DanielLB ventures into the very rich and fast-moving Hobbit Discussion Board to collect The Hobbit Headlines of the Week.  Check out this week’s action here.

We’ll share more topics next week and hope you join in on the conversation!  Don’t forget,’s Message Boards have over 10,200 registered Tolkien fans, just like you.  Let your voice be heard.
