JRR Tolkien Father Christmas Letters
Time: 2:00pm-4:00pm
Location: Southern Oaks, 6900 S Walker Ave. OKC 73139

Ages: 7 & up

J.R.R. Tolkien was best known for his epic fantasies "Lord of the Rings", "The Hobbit" and his studies in myth and language. But Tolkien was also the proud dad of four kids - and he didn't just read "The Hobbit" to them at bedtime. Over the course of many years, he wrote and illustrated detailed, whimsical letters from Father Christmas, populated with a clumsy polar bear, elves and goblins. Janet Croft from the University of Oklahoma will introduce children and parents to these beautifully Illustrated Christmas Letters. Please pre-register.
