Evelyn B. Byrne

From Tolkien Gateway

Evelyn B. Byrne was an American who in 1967-70 ran a program for New York City's Elizabeth Barrett Browning Junior High School, where she asked major literary and artistic figures (including J.R.R. Tolkien) of the time to write back with their recollections of what books inspired them while they were teenagers. An assortment of their responses were collected into the book Attacks of Taste.[1]
