Heroes of Olympus: Book 5 - The Blood of Olympus

Fox Theatre, 2215 Broadway St., Redwood City

SOLD OUT!

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.

Koffler@IFOA presents Dualities: Tales of Two
International Festival of Authors, Sunday, October 26 at 2pm
Koffler Centre of the Arts is a multidisciplinary arts organization and an independent not-for-profit based in Jewish culture. They engage in dialogue through contemporary arts that have local, national and international resonance. Koffler joins with the IFOA again this year to host an event featuring authors Shelly Oria and Alison Pick, who will discuss their most recent works, which explore the navigation of multiple cultures and faiths. They will be interviewed by Cynthia Good.

Cynthia Good has been in the publishing industry for almost 35 years. She was the first Editorial Director of Penguin Group (Canada) before becoming President and Publisher. When she resigned, she joined Humber College, where she developed the Creative Book Publishing Program. Recently, she stepped down from that position to take on the newly created role of Director, Student & Industry Initiatives. She is the recipient of several prestigious awards, including the Humber Award for Excellence in Teaching and the Arbor Award from the University of Toronto for outstanding volunteer service.

Shelly Oria is an award-winning debut author who earned her MFA in Creative Writing from Sarah Lawrence College. A MacDowell Fellow in 2012, Oria curates the series Sweet! Actors Reading Writers in the East Village and teaches fiction at Pratt Institute. She is presenting her short story collection, New York 1, Tel Aviv 0, with stories about existential strangeness, otherworldliness and the search for belonging.

Alison Pick is the author of Far to Go, which was longlisted for the prestigious Man Booker Prize, won the Canadian Jewish Book Award for Fiction and was named a Top 10 of 2010 Book by NOW Magazine and the Toronto Star. She is also a noted poet. Pick presents her moving and unforgettable memoir, Between Gods, which explores family secrets and the rediscovered past.
