Alan Lee in NY!

Hi, I'm new to the community and I wanted to post that Alan Lee is going to be in NY!  A friend passed along his tour schedule and I thought I would post it for other fans.  Unfortunately I won't be able to see him, but stop by my LJ and tell me how it went if anyone plans to go.

 

As part of our on-going celebration of the 50th anniversary of the original U.S. publication of The Fellowship of the Ring (the first part of J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic The Lord of the Rings), Houghton Mifflin, Tolkien's official U.S. publisher for over sixty years, is proud to tour world-renowned artist Alan Lee across the United States. Lee has won international acclaim for his illustrations of J.R.R. Tolkien's books, and he was also one of the conceptual designers onThe Lord of the Ringsfilm trilogy, for which he earned an Academy Award.

Lee will be on a nationwide tour December 4 -- December 11 to discuss his long involvement in bringing the visual world of Tolkien to life, both on the page and the screen. Lee's visual presentation will include a slide show and a display of a dozen original illustrations. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A with fans and a booksigning.
