I’m giving a public lecture at the Charleston Library Society on Thursday night. The talk, entitled “An American Tolkien: Robert Jordan and the Roots of Fantasy,” is now complete with the exception of one short “show and tell” bit for which I’m awaiting a single piece of information from Jordan’s estate. I’m quite relieved to have it finished despite everything else I’m trying to get done.
There was apparently some mention of the lecture in the local newspaper, but I don’t have a subscription, and whatever it was apparently didn’t make the online edition. If I’m lucky, a neighbor will have saved it.
