"There and Back Again & Beyond: Exploring the Meaning in J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit." Presented by author and lecturer Sean McDonough. We'll explore what makes the journey so compelling, how it connects with the deeper history of Tolkien's Middle Earth. "The Hobbit becomes a gateway into the life, learning, and faith" of Tolkien, and "far from being an escape from reality, Tolkien's works ... can be seen as an escape to reality."
