Rick Riordan Live Webcast

Who is ready for The Serpent's Shadow, the third book in the "The Kane Chronicles" series by Rick Riordan (@camphalfblood)? I know I am! Disney/Hyperion and School Library Journal are putting on a live 1 hour webcast from the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum & Planetarium in San Jose, California where you visit with the author!  On Tuesday, May 1st, at 1pm/10am E/P, Riordan will take those viewing on a the tour the museum, which has the largest collection of Egyptian artifacts on exhibit in western North America. He will be reading passages from the new book & will take questions from viewers, according to SLJ. YAY! 

Registration for this is free, and you must register to participate.  For those who can't participate live, be sure to sign-up to receive an email from School Library Journal to tell you when the webcast has been archived so you can watch it later. For more information, check out the School Library Journal article.

The Serpent's Shadow is the final book in "The Kane Chronicles" series which is about a brother and sister, Carter and Sadie Kane, who find out they are the descendants of two pharaohs. Each book in the series The Red Pyramid and The Throne of Fire follows their adventures and, just like "Percy Jackson" series" and Greek mythology, merges Egyptian mythology with the modern world.  If you haven't read this series yet, I highly recommed it.  I love all of Rick Riordan's books, and I can't wait to read The Serpent's Shadow and find out what's going on with Carter and Sadie!  Be sure to register today for this event and sign-up for the email if you can't make it live!
