PERCY JACKSON and the OLYMPIANS ART SHOW!
SATURDAY JANUARY 30TH, 12:00 – 2:00PM
Books of Wonder is very excited to announce that on Saturday, January 30th, from 12-2pm, we will be hosting an event to celebrate the opening of an exhibition of the artwork by JOHN ROCCO for the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series. On display will be the original illustrations for the covers to all five novels as well as the artwork for the color plates from the new The Lightning Thief: Deluxe Edition for all to enjoy – and just in time for the release of the highly anticipated motion picture! Each of the 13 images will be available for sale in a limited edition of just 50 signed and numbered prints created by the artist. Beginning at noon, JOHN ROCCO and JENNIFER BESSER, who edited the series, will discuss their roles in bringing this amazing series to life, take questions from the audience, and sign their books. Though author Rick Riordan will not be able to join us, we will have bookplates signed by him available to go with all books purchased at this event. Ages 8 and up. 12-2pm.
This event is free and open to all. Please note that you are welcome to bring one book from home to be signed for each book you purchase on the day of the event. If you have any questions, call us at (212) 989-3270.
