Royd Tolkien, following in the tracks of his brother and his world-famous great-grandfather J.R.R. Tolkien.

Join our fireside chat with Royd Tolkien, great-grandson of J.R.R. Tolkien, who will talk with us (bilingual English/German) about his recently published book, »Ein Ende mit Anfang ‒ Die unerwartete Reise zweier Brüder« (Topicus, 12 October 2021). In his life-affirming memoir, Tolkien describes the time he spent together with his brother Mike before his death and how the challenges of the bucket list bequeathed to him by Mike took him back to New Zealand.
