JRR Tolkien was born on January 3, 1892

January 3, 2024 @ 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm CST

January 3rd, 2023 marks the 131th birthday of J.R.R. Tolkien. Britain’s most popular author, Tolkien wrote The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings among many other writings. His literary executor and heir, Christopher Tolkien, continued publication of his father’s rather scattered corpus of works, with new volumes of historical documents and epics from Tolkien’s legendarium released until 2020. Now, Amazon has taken up the mantle of producing a weekly drama based on pre-LOTR events of the Second Age of Middle Earth, called the Rings of Power; thus new generations of fans learn to enjoy these legends. On this day each year, Tolkien fans worldwide will raise a toast at 7PM local time at their favorite pub – for Tom Jackson it’s Brit’s Pub – in Tolkien’s honor, with the words, “To The Professor.”
