The main event! Rick Riordan at the Mega Awesome Author Event with Eoin Colfer, Jonathan Stroud and Ridley Pearson. It was an awesome group! Eoin Colfer should be a stand up comedian; that guy really is that funny! Jonathan Stroud has that lovely Brit sense of humor. He’s humble and charming. Ridley Pearson is the kind of author you’d want as a mentor. He’s kind, thoughtful and generous with his time and knowledge.
But were we really here for Rick Riordan? Yes, yes we were. My son has read EVERY SINGLE WORD THAT MAN HAS EVER WRITTEN including the short story in Guys Read: Other Worlds and Son of Sobek in which we had to rent his sister’s Paperwhite at $1 per day!
