Mark Stewart writes: I’m writing about the University of Washington’s Tolkien lecture series that starts in a couple weeks. It was mentioned previously on theonering, but the full site with registration for all five evenings is now available. We’re trying to get the word out to Tolkien fans in the Seattle area. The speaker, Professor Robin Stacey, is a Tolkien scholar and wonderful lecturer. Details about each night of the series are available here. Other cool news is that we’ll probably be offering a podcast/streaming audio versions of the talks at some point after the series is over. Details will go up on the site.
