Celebrate Lord of the Rings Day on November 8th!

November 8th is Lord of the Rings Day! As fans prepare for the much-anticipated release of "The Fellowship of the Ring," the first film in New Line Cinema's epic The Lord of the Rings Trilogy on December 19th, bookstores across the United States will be celebrating the publication of Houghton Mifflin's movie tie-in books, THE LORD OF THE RINGS OFFICIAL MOVIE GUIDE by Brian Sibley and THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING VISUAL COMPANION by Jude Fisher.

At 1:00 p.m. local time on November 8th, the following bookstores will host a LORD OF THE RINGS event featuring a twenty-minute video created exclusively for Houghton Mifflin. It will include the story behind the J.R.R. Tolkien publishing phenomenon; never-before-seen interviews; behind-the-scenes film footage; and conversations with director Peter Jackson, artists Alan Lee and John Howe, as well as stars from the movie, including Ian McKellen, Elijah Wood, Cate Blanchett, Liv Tyler, Viggo Mortensen, and Orlando Bloom.

The film books, along with this exclusive video event, will be a dazzling preview of one of the most eagerly awaited film projects of all time!
