The Hobbit was published on September 21, 1937
September 21, 1937
J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit, or There and Back Again, was published on this day in 1937. It was a huge hit, was nominated for the Carnegie Medal was awarded an award for best juvenile fiction from the New York Herald Tribune. The much-loved story about Bilbo Baggin’s adventure has been turned into various television and film adaptations over the years with Peter Jackson’s most recent trilogy of films being the most grandest. Perhaps the strangest adaptation has been the video game by LEGO which was more closely related to Jackson’s movies than to the original novel.
