OH – Warrior Genius Signing

Michael Dante DiMartino appears at Books & Co on Wednesday, January 17, 2018 at 7:00 PM to present and sign his new novel WARRIOR GENIUS, the second installment of his Geniuses series!

In twelve-year-old Giacomo’s Renaissance-inspired world, art is powerful, dangerous, and outlawed. A few artists possess Geniuses, birdlike creatures that are the living embodiment of an artist’s creative spirit. Those caught with one face a punishment akin to death, so when Giacomo discovers he has a Genius, he knows he’s in serious trouble.

Michael Dante DiMartino is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design and the co-creator of the award-winning animated Nickelodeon series Avatar: The Last Airbender and its sequel, The Legend of Korra. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife. The Rebel Genius series is his debut prose work.

CA – Warrior Genius Launch Party

Michael Dante DiMartino, co-creator of the hit animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender and Legend of Korra, appears at Once Upon a Time Bookstore on Sunday, January 7, 2018 at 2:00 PM to present and sign his new novel WARRIOR GENIUS, the second installment of his Geniuses series!

The event will consist of a short presentation by Michael with a Q&A followed by a book signing. Michael DiMartino fans are welcome to bring their copies of his books from home. However, you can only get this live and in-person experience from Once Upon A Time and so priority will be given to those who purchase a book from our store. 

About the book: In Warrior Genius, author Michael Dante DiMartino delivers rich settings, memorable characters, and edge-of-your-seat action, just as he did in his hit animated show Avatar: The Last Airbender. Fans will be thrilled with this new adventure!

It has been years since Geniuses–creatures that channel their owners’ creative energy–were banished from Zizzola. But a new generation of artists and their bird-Geniuses has been training in secret. Led by Giacomo, a young orphan with promising talent, they set out to track down the Sacred Tools that could hold the power to overthrow the ruthless emperor, Nerezza.

Michael Dante DiMartino appears in conversation with Gene Luen Yang on Monday, October 10, 2016, 7:00 p.m. at Kepler’s Books to present his new novel REBEL GENIUS!

Press Release:

If you are a fan of the award-winning animated Nickelodeon shows Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra, you need to come hear co-creator Michael DiMartino talk about his new adventure series, Rebel Genius, which Soman Chainani, author of The School for Good and Evil trilogy calls “a mind-blowing new series, a passionate blend of adventure, mystery, and puzzle-solving that has no end to its imagination.”

In twelve-year-old Giacomo’s Renaissance-inspired world, art is powerful, dangerous, and outlawed. A few artists possess Geniuses, birdlike creatures that are the living embodiment of an artist’s creative spirit. Those caught with one face a punishment akin to death, so when Giacomo discovers he has a Genius, he knows he’s in serious trouble. Luckily, he finds safety in a secret studio where young artists and their Geniuses train in sacred geometry to channel their creative energies as weapons. But when a murderous artist goes after the three Sacred Tools–objects that would allow him to destroy the world and everyone in his path―Giacomo and his friends must risk their lives to stop him.

Michael will be in conversation with Gene Luen Yang, National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature, author of American Born Chinese, Boxers and Saints, and Secret Coders and writer of the Avatar: The Last Airbender graphic novels. This is a conversation not to be missed!
