Sarah Zama

Sarah Zama is a Tolkien nerd and proud of it. She read The Hobbit the first time as a teenager and was a Tolkien fan years before Peter Jackson's trilogy ever hit the theatres. She's always been involved with Tolkien groups, both online and in person. In 2004, she founded a Tolkien group in her city, Verona (Italy), which is still meeting and divulging the Professor's work. In 2017, she started reading Tolkien's work with a group of other nerdy readers, one chapter a day. They are still on the road together. Ghosts Through the Cracks is her first published novella. She's currently working at more historical fantasy stories set in the 1920s, and blogs regularly at theoldshelter.com.

 

 

We are very honored and excited to have these terrific panelists join us for TolkienMoot XVI this year.

Next year, Dr. Brenton Dickieson of Signum University will join us for the Zenith of Numenór (from Tar-Aldarion to Tar-Atanamir).
