Hi friends! This was posted on Chinwag, but just in case we missed anyone who’s not on Facebook… We’re having a little gathering in the Portland, OR area this coming Saturday, 1/13. We’ll be meeting at McMenamins Kennedy School at 1:00. If you’re in the area, we’d love to have you join us! Please just reply to this post so we can update the reservation and give you some more details. Oh, and it just “so happens” that the Kennedy School is hosting a special all-day celebration of Tolkien’s birthday, so it should be a fun time!
