Rick Riordan to answer viewer questions in live webcast
Sunday 12 September 2010
Rick Riordan, the author of the Percy Jackson books and upcoming series The Kane Chronicles and Heroes of Olympus will discuss his books via a live webcast on November 2, announced the author via Twitter on September 9. The event will include a live Q&A session during which viewers will be invited to submit questions for Riordan.
Rick Riordan made international bestseller lists with his Percy Jackson series, about a 12-year-old boy who discovers he is the son of a Greek god and is sent to Camp Half-Blood, a camp for children with a Greek god for a parent. The Red Pyramid, the first title in his series The Kane Chronicles, was released in May, and on October 12 the author will publish The Lost Hero, the first title in his Percy Jackson spin-off series Heroes of Olympus.
The webcast - geared especially toward 8- to 12-year-olds - will take place from 14:00 pm through 14:45pm GMT on November 2 and will be available as an on-demand replay shortly thereafter.
According to Riordan, topics he'll discuss in his webcast include Greek mythology, ancient Egypt, his three-book series, and information such as "what to do if you think you might be a demi-god," "what to do if you suspect one of your teachers might be an ancient Greek or Egyptian monster," and "proper spells to turn your friends into large furry rodents."
