It's the 75th anniversary of the publication of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit, so let's celebrate! Corey Olsen, aka the Tolkien Professor, will discuss his companion volume, Exploring J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit. Wayne Hammond and Christina Scull will show the original artwork drawn by Tolkien himself. And to get everyone in the mood, we'll play the latest trailer for the soon-to-be-released film directed by Peter Jackson. Moderated by Ethan Gilsdorf, Hobbit enthusiast and author of Fantasy Freaks and Gaming Geeks. Sponsored by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.
