One Ring Book Club
Join us on a journey through Middle-earth as we delve into the first installment of J.R.R. Tolkien's epic trilogy, The Fellowship of the Ring.
In this book club, we will gather to discuss the world-building, characters, and themes of this beloved classic fantasy novel. As we follow the journey of Frodo Baggins and the Fellowship on their quest to destroy the One Ring, we will explore Tolkien's richly imagined world, filled with magic, mythology, and adventure. We will discuss the complex characters and their motivations, from Frodo and his companions to the enigmatic Gollum and the evil Lord Sauron.
Throughout our discussions, we will also explore the themes of the book, including the power of friendship and loyalty, the corrupting influence of power, and the battle between good and evil. We will examine how these themes are developed throughout the novel and their relevance to our own lives.
Whether you're a longtime fan of The Lord of the Rings or discovering Middle-earth for the first time, this book club is the perfect opportunity to dive deep into this timeless classic and share your thoughts and insights with other readers. Please join us as we embark on this epic adventure, from The Shire to Mordor.
This book club meets the third Thursday of the month to discuss The Lord of the Rings. Please note, this book club goes into details with the book and is broken down into 4 parts. Please have up to chapter 6, "The Old Forest" read by this meeting.
