Phoenix Books has announced that it will be bringing fantasy author Kevin Hearne to its Burlington location to talk about his latest book, Besieged, a collection of stories from his Iron Druid Chronicles. The event will take place on July 17th at 7pm at Phoenix’s Burlington location.
The Iron Druid Chronicles is a hilarious and action-packed urban fantasy set in a modern world in which all the gods of every pantheon are alive and well, as in American Gods. Its hero is a smart-mouthed, buttkicking magician. But it’s told in a smart, witty, unforgettable voice that’s all Kevin Hearne—a star in the fantasy world. This addictive and wildly imaginative series stars hero Atticus O’Sullivan: a handsome, tattooed Irishman who looks like a young rock star, but is in actuality a 2,000-year-old Druid with extraordinary magic powers. In Besieged, Atticus’ adventures throughout history are told in a collection of nine new and original short stories.
Tickets for the event will benefit the Vermont Foodbank. Tickets will be $3 per person, and include a coupon for $5 off the featured book. Coupons expire at closing the evening of the event. Seating is limited.
