An Unexpected Party: A Birthday Party for Bilbo Baggins in Celebration of the 75th Anniversary of The Hobbit (Essex)

09/22/2012 7:00 pm

In honor of the upcoming movie release and the 75th anniversary of the publication of The Hobbit, Phoenix Books is proud to host a birthday party for Bilbo Baggins on September 22, 2012. Join us for food, games, prizes, readings from The Hobbit, and special appearances by some of your favorite characters! Costumes are welcomed and encouraged.

Houghton Mifflin and Warner Brothers have teamed with us to put on the event. There will be a movie preview and a reading from a section of The Hobbit. For the week prior to the party, the cafe will feature hobbit-related food for sale. We'll also have light fare at the party, including a birthday cake. We are planning games and giveaways, and several of the staff are dressing up for the event - and that's just the beginning!

Pictured below: A felted-wool Smaug sculpture created by Donna McDermid will be a prize at the party!  We're also selling hobbit door cookies - yum!
