From The Altoona Herald: J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Hobbit” proves that not every fantasy hero has to look like a fearless warrior. A discussion will take place from 3:45 to 4:45 p.m. Monday [September 8th] at the South Side Library, 1111 Porter Ave., on Bilbo Baggins’ transformation from a quiet-living hobbit of the Shire into a rather reluctant hero plodding across Middle Earth. Books will be available at the South Side Library’s information desk. And since hobbits generally eat six meals a day, snacks will be provided to get voracious readers in the mood. For more information on library programs, call 283-4152.
