Legions of fans now await The Magician's Land, a novel full of the subversive brilliance that has put Grossman at the forefront of modern fantasy, which will bring the Magicians trilogy to a shattering, triumphant conclusion, and Greenlight is thrilled to host the book’s official launch. Grossman will be joined by fellow acclaimed fantasy writers Lauren Oliver (Before I Fall and the Delirium trilogy), Margaret Stohl (Beautiful Creatures), Erin Morgenstern (The Night Circus), and Lev’s twin brother Austin Grossman (Soon I Will Be Invincable, You) among others, for a dramatic presentation and discussion of the new novel.
