Simsbury Public Library talk on The Stars of Middle-earth

Many people don’t realize that fantasy author J.R.R. Tolkien was, well, a bit obsessive when it came to getting right the astronomical detail in his tales of Middle-earth. This often led to difficulties, delays, and contradictions. The Simsbury Public Library is hosting a free public talk on Monday, March 27 (6:30 PM) by our own Dr. Kristine Larsen on J.R.R. Tolkien’s Tumultuous Love Affair with Astronomy. For more information, see the library’s website.
