Dinner With Tolkien
There were many people who read in Palmerston North library's reading of The Lord of the Rings. One of those people was Mr. Robert Neale. While browsing the Palmerston North city library site in the LotR section I came upon a picture of Mr. Neale reading to the audience of Tolkien fans, the caption mentioned that he was reading out of his own copy of LotR signed by Professor Tolkien himself! I jumped at the chance of hearing his story and getting an interview with him.
Here is his story, my questions and comments are normal, his answers and narratives are indented.
