Mary Robinette Kowal & Marie Brennan on Book Tour: Chicago

May 5, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

| Free


Join the Hugo-Award-winning Mary Robinette Kowal (The Glamourist Histories) and Marie Brennan (The Memoirs of Lady Trent) as they kick off their book tour in Chicago, at the DePaul University Loop Campus Official Bookstore at Barnes and Noble.

Mary is celebrating the final installment of her Glamourist History novels, Of Noble Family (set in an alt-history Regency era where practicing magic is a domestic art), and Marie is promoting her third novel in the Memoirs of Lady Trent series, Voyage of the Basilisk, in which Lady Trent is a natural scientist studying dragons (which are non-magical creatures) in an alt-world Victorian era.

Mary and Marie will read some of their work and take questions from attendees. And for anyone who attends in costumes that refer to the authors’ works, there will be give-aways!

This reading is free and open to the public.

Of Noble Family by Mary Robinette Kowal (release date 4/28/15)
