Tolkien Reading Day and the Olympic Museum in Lausanne
What is Tolkien Reading Day?
Tolkien Reading Day is held on the 25th of March each year. The date of the 25th of March was chosen as the date on which the Ring was destroyed, completing Frodo’s quest and vanquishing Sauron.
It has been organised by the Tolkien Society since 2003 to encourage fans to celebrate and promote the life and works of J.R.R. Tolkien by reading favourite passages. We particularly encourage schools, museums and libraries to host their own Tolkien Reading Day events.
This year's theme is travel and adventure!
One of my first tumblr posts was a favourite drawing of Tolkien's which sums up the spirit of travel and adventure for me.
And hey, look, apparently on the desktop version, it's the background to my tumblr site!
Somewhat related, we visited the Olympic Museum in Lausanne last month!
That's so neat that yo worked for the Olympics, HIlary! If I'd remembered, I would have taken a photo of the Munich poster for you!
