Brian Jacques, author of the Redwall saga books, will be in Columbus, Oct. 21 from 6:00-8:00. This is a pretty unique opportunity and I admit I signed up within 15 minutes of getting the information. He makes his home in Liverpool and also narrates the audio versions of his novels complete with voices! They are pretty amazing. There is also a cartoon version done by one of the PBS stations of at least the first two books in the series.
Jacques will do a presentation about his newest book (Doomwyte) and an autographing. You might have students that might like to know about this opportunity. The phone number to register is 614-263-1624 in case you live in the Central Ohio area.
