Tolkien in Leeds

I made this: Avid Reader at 11:05 am
As readers of the Beyond Guardian Leeds Posts will be aware, J. R. R. Tolkien is to honoured this week with a blue plaque, right here in 'our' fair city.

He taught as a Professor at the University of Leeds for five years, producing his 'A Middle English Vocabulary' & the definitive edition of 'Sir Gawain & the Green Knight'.

Daragh Corcoran of BBC Radio Leeds is hoping to talk to someone about Tolkien's time in Leeds. If you're a fan & know how/if/whether the geography of Leeds influenced in his epic Middle Earth books then Daragh needs YOU!!!
