Keynote: Tom Shippey

Joining us virtually from across The Pond this year is Professor Tom Shippey, one of the most well-known and influential Tolkien scholars, a longtime friend to Signum and Mythgard, and now also a consultant on Amazon’s Lord of the Rings show.

He will be talking to us about “J.R.R. Tolkien and G.R.R. Martin: some comparisons,” and maybe a few other things, which will likely inspire some interesting conversations.
