The Hobbit cover

Books and Authors review of The Hobbit:

Bilbo Baggins, a respectable, home-loving hobbit, is quite happy to stay at home until he meets a wizard, Gandalf, and is enticed, cajoled, and encouraged into an adventure in which he becomes an “Expert Treasure Hunter.” Together with Gandalf and a band of dwarves, Bilbo Baggins sets out to reclaim a fortune in gold that is now in the hands of Smaug the Magnificent, a terrifying dragon. Along the way they encounter threats in the guise of trolls, spiders, and wolves. Bilbo must draw upon his courage and strength of conviction to stand alone before the dragon and do what he has been chosen to do. In the end, Bilbo makes a discovery that will have far-reaching effects on the inhabitants of Middle-Earth. “The Hobbit.” 2014. Books & Authors Gale.

Copies of the book will be available to group members to borrow or to purchase.

For more information call (423)434-4454, send an e-mail to phoneroom@jcpl.net or inquire at the Information Desk on the 2nd floor of the library.
