The Wandering Company is a group of friends who come together to enjoy books, current events, movies, board games, dinners, and the mysterious meanings of our lives. We met a few years ago in the course of exploring the tales of JRR Tolkien. Reading is a solitary activity, but when you read a book you spend time with the people in the books, with the authors of those books, with the fans of those books. The whole world opens before us with the solitary act of reading a book. Wielding this kind of magic, we have created the Tolkien Reading Circle as a community of wanderers in Middle-earth and the world beyond.
