The Hobbit Elevensies event

The USF in Lakeland Library and Student Government are cordially inviting you to take part in The Hobbit Elevensies.

Friday, September 21 @ 11 AM
USF Lakeland Student Government (LTB 1154)

Celebrate hobbit-style the 75th anniversary of the publication of J.R.R. Tolkien’s novel The Hobbit.

Inspired by the ideals cherished by hobbits everywhere – camaraderie, companionship and, of course, a love of good food -The Hobbit Elevensies is your chance to pop the kettle on, sit down with friends and colleagues, and take a moment to eat, drink and be merry.

This is a potluck event. Bring your favorite breakfast, brunch or lunch items, or favorite beverage – in enough quantity to share.

* What are elevensies? Well, in the Prologue to The Fellowship of the Ring, hobbits are described as such: “And laugh they did, and eat, and drink, often and heartily, being fond of simple jests at all times, and of six meals a day (when they could get them).”

So those (actually seven) meals are: breakfast, second breakfast, elevensies, luncheon, tea, dinner and supper (does not include snacks.) Elevensies is the 11AM meal.

The USF in Lakeland Library and Student Government invite you to celebrate YOUR freedom to read by participating in a READ OUT! event during Banned Books Week.

What: Read from a challenged or banned book for a 15 minutes period. There is no microphone, no sitting audience – you read from a passage of your choice from a book of your choice in a normal voice to passers-by. Anyone can read: students, staff or faculty members.

When: Tuesday, October 2, from 11:30 AM to 1 PM and from 4:30 PM to 6 PM

Where: On the LTB terrace, outside the USF in Lakeland Library/Open Use Lab

How: Sign up with the Business Librarian, Lisa Zilinski (lzilinski@usf.edu), with your preferred time and title (if possible, readers should bring their own books since the Library has a limited selection. Please see the 2011-2012 list of challenged or banned books and the list of the 100 most challenged or banned books from 2000 to 2009 for title ideas.) We’ll do our best to accommodate your preferred time.

Don’t want to read out loud? Come to the Library during the week to check out the displays, pick up a handout, or participate in a book or movie discussion.

This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Freedom to Read! Banned Books Week takes place from September 30 to October 6. Find more information about Banned Books Week and the freedom to read on the American Library Association website.
