Youth Event: Rick Riordan
Wednesday, October 15, 7:00 p.m.
Fox Theatre, 2215 Broadway St., Redwood City
GREAT NEWS! Rick Riordan is returning to the Bay Area to talk about The Blood of Olympus, the finale in his Heroes of Olympus series. We are SOOOO excited.
Though the Greek and Roman crewmembers of the Argo II have made progress in their many quests, they still seem no closer to defeating the earth mother, Gaea. Her giants have risen-all of them-and they're stronger than ever. They must be stopped before the Feast of Spes, when Gaea plans to have two demigods sacrificed in Athens. She needs their blood-the blood of Olympus-in order to wake.
The demigods are having more frequent visions of a terrible battle at Camp Half-Blood. The Roman legion from Camp Jupiter, led by Octavian, is almost within striking distance. Though it is tempting to take the Athena Parthenos to Athens to use as a secret weapon, the friends know that the huge statue belongs back on Long Island, where it might be able to stop a war between the two camps.
The Athena Parthenos will go west; the Argo II will go east. The gods, still suffering from multiple personality disorder, are useless. How can a handful of young demigods hope to persevere against Gaea's army of powerful giants? As dangerous as it is to head to Athens, they have no other option. They have sacrificed too much already. And if Gaea wakes, it is game over.
PLEASE NOTE: Mr. Riordan will only be speaking and answering patrons’ questions during the event, therefore no signing line will be held. Pre-signed copies of the HEROES OF OLYMPUS series, and the PERCY JACKSON AND THE OLYMPIANS series, and the KANE CHRONICLES series, will be available for purchase at the Fox Theatre the evening of the event.
