Return of the Ring 2012 Wrap-up Interview

Hail friends!  Towards the end of the Return of the Ring weekend, I thought it would be a grand idea to sit down with Tolkien Society organizer and wise counselor of the convention Shaun Gunner and have a look back at the convention’s highlights.  We talk about Peter Jackson, Jay Johnstone, Cor Blok, Tom Shippey, Ted Nasmith and much more!  We could not possibly cover it all, as there was so much wonderful content offered by this event.  I have not heard of a greater event in the realm of Tolkiendom and could not imagine a finer roster of guests.  I hope you enjoy this fond farewell and wrap-up talk with Shaun Gunner and perhaps it will offer a slight glimpse of the great fun and enlightenment that we experienced over this once in a lifetime weekend.

Stay tuned to Middle-earth News as we bring you ongoing features from the Tolkien Society and our visit to Return of the Ring 2012!
