**THIS EVENT IS TAKING PLACE AT OUR NEW LOCATION: 3555 ROSECRANS ST, SUITE 107 (corner of Rosecrans & Midway)
We are delighted to host the author of the New York Times bestselling Artemis Fowl series of books, Eoin Colfer. Eoin was born in Wexford on the South-East coast of Ireland, raised by his father (an elementary school teacher, historian, and artist) and mother (a drama teacher). His interest in writing began developing as early as elementary school by Viking stories he was taught in history class. After getting his degree from Dublin university, he taught for a time in Wexford, and then as far as Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, and Italy. In 2001, after the first Artemis Fowl book was published, he resigned teaching to write full-time. His latest adult novel, High Fire, follows a vodka-drinking, Flashdance-loving dragon who lives an isolated life in the bayous of Louisiana. When he crosses paths with a fifteen-year-old troublemaker on the run from a crooked sheriff, all sorts of raucous adventures ensue.
