Rick Riordan Returns to St. Louis!

August 25, 2010



Parking at MICDS is extremely limited. A free shuttle service will run from the  Plaza Frontenac parking lot (across from St. Louis County Library Headquarters on Lindbergh) to the MICDS Athletic Center. We highly recommend this service to anyone arriving at the event after 6 pm. Shuttle service will begin at 4 pm and continue until after the book signing portion of the evening.

The Rick Riordan event is now sold out. There will not be tickets available at the door during the event.

The St. Louis County Library’s event with Rick Riordan in 2009 attracted over 1,600 young readers and was the largest event in Library history! We are thrilled to announce that Mr. Riordan will be returning to St. Louis for an even bigger and better event in 2010. And this year, the Library will host the event in the McDonnell Athletic Center at MICDS (Mary Institute and Country Day School) so that over 2000+ fans will definitely get to hear Mr. Riordan speak and have their books signed!

Date/Time: Thursday, October 14, 7 pm (Doors open at 6 pm. Because of MICDS’s school schedule, we ask that you wait until after 4 pm to line up.)

Location: Gymnasium – MICDS, 101 N. Warson Rd., St. Louis, MO 63124 (MICDS is located at the intersection of Ladue and Warson — McDonnell Athletic Center,  Entrance 1 on Ladue Rd.)

Free tickets are required and available at the St. Louis County Library regional branches (Headquarters, Tesson Ferry, Florissant Valley, and Daniel Boone) and at MICDS after September 7th.

Seating at the event will be first-come, first served–except for a reserved seat section for the Friends of the Library Foundation (annual membership group). Books will be available for purchase at the event from Borders (Brentwood location (314) 918-8189). Book signing line numbers will be given out as people arrive at the event.

Mr. Riordan will sign one book per person in line.

A young adult fantasy phenomenon, Rick Riordan is the author of the bestselling Percy Jackson and the Olympians series and “The Kane Chronicles, Book One: The Red Pyramid.”

Mr. Riordan will discuss “The Heroes of Olympus: The Lost Hero.” Now, in a brand-new series, fans of the Percy Jackson books can return to the world of Camp Half-Blood, where a new group of heroes will inherit a quest. But to survive the journey, they’ll need the help of some familiar demigods.

This event is presented by St. Louis County Library’s Reading Garden Event Series and sponsored by MICDS, Commerce Bank, Companion, and Borders.

        Mr. Riordan will sign any of his books (new or old), but he will only sign one book per person.
