This week’s Photo of the Week goes to Roundup News staff photographer Giuliana Orlandoni. Her feature photo of Professor Lawrence Krikorian holding a replica sword of Andúril from the Lord of The Rings films, made front page of the latest issue of the Roundup News. From the article written by Jordan Utley-Thomson:

“‘I first read The Lord of the Rings in [an] eighth grade algebra class by hiding it in my textbook,” Krikorian said while laughing. “I had never read it before, and I envy people who’ve never read The Lord of the Rings and get to read it for the first time.’

But as a scholar of the arts, Krikorian does not limit himself to just goblins and elves. He also enjoys the deeper and darker sensibilities of post-war American novelists such as Joseph Heller, Ernest Hemingway, and F. Scott Fitzgerald.”
