Tonight’s event at UNM with Rick Riordan – the author of Percy Jackson, and many more books, was fantastic! Not only did he answer a few questions from the audience, he also introduced us to a few local author that are published by Rick Riordan Presents – Disney Hyperion Publishing.
The two local authors that were at this event were – J.C. Cervantes & Rebecca Roanhorse. Both had stories my son would LOVE to read.
Now at tonight’s event there were about 900 or more people there ! So when we left the event, my son wanted to buy some books from the other authors but honestly it was just crazy in the lobby. So we are going to buy these two authors online instead. I would have loved to get him a book from the book shop here- if their tables were a bit further from the exit doors. It just seemed like poor planning, but that’s fine. I may try to buy the books online from their shop, if its an option.
Anyways – we love Rick Riordan’s books! I am very happy I got to take my son to this event, to get a signed book and listen to Rick talk. It was entertaining and it was nice to get out off the house. Even if I had to chase a toddler around the event room for an hour, HA.
Since every ticket got a signed book- I got 3 books total. My son is keeping one for himself, and the others have been spoken for and will be mailed out tomorrow! I am glad they will be in loving homes with people who appreciate the books 🙂 If you went to the event and didn’t want ALL the books- they would donate them to the local schools instead. Which is also a very nice option.
If I didn’t have mine spoken for, I would have put them in a little free library to spread the love.
