Homeschooled Author Visiting Philly

I was at the Free Library today and found out about an author visit. Christopher Paolini is coming on August 26th at 7pm. Admission is free and no reservations are required. He was homeschooled and grew up in Montana and graduated high school at age 15. He is working on a trilogy about a boy and 2 dragons (complete with elves and an elven language from what I gather). The first book, Eragon was published by Knopf Books for Young Readers in August 2003 and is being filmed for a movie version. The second book in the trilogy, Eldest, will be released August 23, 2005.

Visit his website for more information about the books. With over 1000 reviews on Amazon, the first book rates at four stars by Amazon readers.
