Bulldog Book Club 3/2 and 3/8: The Hobbit

February 28, 2011 – 3:25 PM

With a forthcoming movie by Peter Jackson in the works, it’s a great time to re-read J. R. R. Tolkien’s classic fantasy adventure, The Hobbit.  Then come to Bulldog Book Club and discuss it with English Professor Fran Teague and a UGA Librarian.  Bulldog Book Club is open to all.

The truth is that in this book a number of good things, never before united, have come together: a fund of humour, an understanding of children, and a happy fusion of the scholar’s with the poet’s grasp of mythology… The professor has the air of inventing nothing. He has studied trolls and dragons at first hand and describes them with that fidelity that is worth oceans of glib “originality.”  – C. S. Lewis
