Kevin Fedarko will speak about and sign his new book, The Emerald Mile, on Friday, October 10th at 7:30pm.

About the Book: In the spring of 1983, massive flooding along the Colorado River almost resulted in a catastrophic dam failure. In the midst of this crisis, a decision was made to launch a small wooden dory called ‘The Emerald Mile’ at the head of the Grand Canyon, which was not just odd, but suicidal. The goal was to nail the all-time record for the fastest boat ever propelled down the entire length of the Colorado River. Now, this remarkable epic feat unfolds in The Emerald Mile, a thrilling and true tale of the fastest boat ride ever.

Rick Riordan will speak about his new book, The Blood of Olympus, on Sunday, October 12th at *1:30pm* at Boulder Theater.

About the Book: In The Blood of Olympus, the final installment of The Heroes of Olympus series, the crewmembers of the Argo II have made progress in their quests, but they still seem no closer to defeating Gaea. Her giants have risen 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 The Blood of Olympus in order to wake. 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. And if Gaea wakes, it’s game over.

Tickets are available from Boulder Theater - click HERE to buy your tickets

Tickets are $25 and include one signed copy of The Blood of Olympus. You will get your book at Boulder Theater on the day of the event.
