Journey through Middle-earth with scholars and experts as your guides. First and third Sundays from September until December.
December 2 Smaug & Medieval Dragon Mythology Kendra Smith, PhD in Medieval Literature This presentation will look at Tolkien's dragon from The Hobbit, Smaug, his significance, and the medieval dragon mythology that Tolkien built upon. By looking at the author's texts, excerpts of his own scholarly works, and examples of noteworthy medieval dragons, Dr. Smith will trace the likely influences that the medieval imagination had on Tolkien's own. The presentation will include visual displays of medieval manuscript images, and may also briefly consider Smaug's portrayal in the upcoming Peter Jackson rendition of The Hobbit.
Metered street parking is free on Sundays.
