Tolkien Reading Day

Tolkien Reading Day is an annual event, launched by The Tolkien Society in 2003, that takes place on 25 March. It has the aim of encouraging the reading of the works of J. R. R. Tolkien and the use of Tolkien’s works in education and library groups. The date of March 25 was chosen in honor of the fall of Sauron.


This is a rare recording of J.R.R. Tolkien from 1952, in which he recites the Quenya poem “Namárië”, famously sung by Galadriel in the chapter “Farewell to Lórien” in “The Lord of the Rings”.
