3:30 PM : Spotlight on Eoin Colfer
Eoin Colfer signs W.A.R.P. Book 1: The Reluctant AssassinWe conclude our gala celebration with the best-selling author of the Artemis Fowl series, as well as adult novels Plugged, Screwed, and And Another Thing… and for Whovians, Doctor Who: A Big Hand for the Doctor ebook, Eoin Colfer. Publishers Weekly enthusiastically noted: “Readers mourning the end of the Artemis Fowl series can take heart: this first book in the time-bending W.A.R.P. series is an all-out blast. And its stars are every bit as dynamic as Artemis and Holly. Colfer blends grisly moments of horror, sharply funny dialogue, science fiction spectacle, and characters with depth to create a story that strikes the ideal balance between escapist fun and thoughtful commentary on the ways history, both personal and global, can shape a person.” Numbers for the signing line are free with the purchase of The Reluctant Assassin from Mysterious Galaxy, available May 7th.
