Before the Sun and Moon, two trees gave light to the Blessed Realm. But an evil act by the diabolical Morgoth destroys the trees and leaves the world in darkness. The symbolism could hardly be stronger. The devastation of Tolkien’s childhood countryside haunts this tale and all his works of fiction.
This Saturday (March 5 at 6pm ET (New York time)) Hall of Fire will be discussing Tolkien, nature and the environment as it appears in his works.

There and Back Again – Looking Back on an Extraordinary Journey
Seventeen years ago, a film maker in New Zealand began his work bringing Middle-earth to the screen; and TheOneRing.net began a mission… quest… thing. In the years which followed, we’ve travelled far and wide, in cyberspace and in the real world; meeting cast and crew; getting magical glimpses behind the scenes; and most importantly, sharing an epic journey with our fellow fans across the globe. Join staffers from TheOneRing.net to share reminiscences about the highs and lows of this Unexpected Journey with a Fellowship of Fans.
You can read the full program for HobbitCon here.
The schedule is subject to change, so we’ll update you if need be! Meanwhile we hope to meet lots of fans there. Rumour has it this may be the LAST HobbitCon – so let’s make it a good one! See you in Germany. Bis bald!
