Guy Gavriel Kay delivers the 8th Annual Tolkien Lecture at Pembroke College, Oxford.
Kay has published 14 novels and a book of poetry. He is a two-time winner of the Aurora Award and a multiple World Fantasy Award nominee, the latter of which he won for "Ysabel." He also received the International Goliardos Prize for his contributions to literature of the fantastic.
Since 2013, students from Pembroke College have organised an annual public lecture in honour of J.R.R. Tolkien. The lecture series promotes the study of fantasy literature, and advances our understanding of it, by inviting influential and talented speakers to share their ideas on the field.
