Event location information is here:
The announcement is as follows:
Tuesday April 17 7pm
J.R.R. Tolkien's The Children of Húrin (Houghton Mifflin)
In 1918, J.R.R. Tolkien began work on a story of pre-Lord of the Rings
Middle-earth. Though pieces of it have appeared in many places, the
complete tale has never been publisheduntil now. For the last 30
years, Tolkien's son Christopher has been piecing together the threads
of the story to craft a definitive version of The Children of Húrin,
and to celebrate its release, we're holding a read-a-thon in Bellevue.
Come out and hear a selection of the book it took three decades to

seems to have been taken down.
However, a friend just sent me a link to a much better piece, which
not only has an interesting picture of JRRT but also a photo of Adam
Tolkien and accompanying interview.
I did find another review, the worst I've seen yet, by Marta Salij, at
--basically she sneers at it for not being another LotR, and taunts
"Tolkienheads" who might admire JRRT's early work.
Finally, a long, thoughtful interview with Wayne & Christina has just
been posted at Tolkienlibrary.com:
