The American Tolkien Society is dedicated exclusively to the study and fuller appreciation of the works of J.R.R. Tolkien and his son, Christopher J.R. Tolkien.  Through our programs, we strive to bring into contact the followers and connoisseurs of these works.

We publish an online journal on this website,

Minas Tirith Evening-Star,

to provide a meeting ground for the exchange of ideas and joy generated by Tolkien’s monumental works.

Our journal includes the best in articles, poetry, fiction and a selection of reviews, games and features.

The Society was organized in 1975; our journal began publication independently in 1967 and is currently marking its fiftieth anniversary.
