The Magician King Signing 8/10!

For Harry Potter fans there is a void that needs to be filled. So while you're waiting for your Hogwarts letter from Pottermore, I suggest checking out The Magicians by Lev Grossman.

I picked up The Magicians on a whim in a now defunct Borders store. It was one of the best books I've ever picked up. Think adult version (as opposed to YA) of Harry Potter set in Narnia - and there are no happy endings. Six months later I seized the opportunity to check out a booksigning. It was the most interesting signing I've been too - an elderly attendee began comparing The Magicians to the upcoming Sorcerer's Apprentice. (There's no contest that The Magicians is far better).

Lev Grossman continues where The Magicians left off with The Magician King. If you're a fan or aching for a new book, Grossman will be holding a Q&A and signing his latest book at two stores. On Tuesday, August 9th, Grossman will be at WORD bookstore in Brooklyn, and at Barnes & Nobles on Wednesday, August 10th.

Hope to see you there with at least two books in hand!
