The Keynote event for this one-day conference will be Colin Havard, the son of Inkling Doctor Havard, being interviewed by Mike Foster about Colin’s memories of J. R. R. Tolkien, C. S. Lewis, and other Inklings. When he was a teen, Colin attended some of the morning Inklings meetings with his father. Other speakers at the conference include Tolkien Artist Will Coats, who will explain why he illustrated specific scenes the way he did. The Wheaton College (Illinois) Tolkien Society will give a performance, and there will be several other speakers as well. Cost: $25 per person (includes lunch).
