Fellowship of the Book

Do you love adventures? Have you ever gotten so drawn into a fantasy world that you have forgotten how the so-called “real one” operates? How often have you daydreamed about meeting your favorite characters?
If any of these questions applied to you, then you will fit right in as we study J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings and its prequel, The Hobbit. During class, we will engage in meaningful discussion, participate in thought-provoking simulations and activities, and study related concepts. During the week, students will study assigned readings and hone their prose and creative writing skills. Throughout the semester, we will question why The Lord of the Rings is the best selling novel ever written (with over 150 million copies sold) and decide what makes it a classic. We will also draw parallels between the experiences of Frodo and Bilbo with our own journey through scholar phase and life.
In this class, we will unlock the ability of fiction to change lives and create stronger, smarter and kinder people who are better equipped to fill their mission in the world- “real” or otherwise.
Supplies: The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings (The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers and The Return of the King) by J.R.R. Tolkien

Cost: $145.00 per semester

  1. The best literature class I've ever taken


    I would recommend this class to anybody who loves to write, read deeply, and discuss books! Through this class I have learned so many writing skills, and gotten so much more out of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings than if I had read alone. It was an amazing experience, leaving me a better writer, reader, and thinker than I was before. Ms. D’Anneka is a wonderful mentor, who encourages and challenges her students to do their best, and teaches so many important lessons in this class.

  2. Best English Class Ever!


    I loved participating in this class, it has been the highlight of my week. Fellowship of the Book has helped me to appreciate the classics and to be more open to reading them. It has helped a lot with my understanding of English and why it is so important to know English principles. My character and life have been wonderfully improved by this class and I hope to find more good classes like this.
