FREE; no tickets or reservations required

Caltech and Vroman's Bookstore are excited to present Christopher Paolini and the third book in his Inheritance series entitled Brisingr. The first book in the series, Eragon, written when Paolini was only 15, became a major motion picture. It was followed by Eldest, and now Brisingr.
Following the colossal battle against the Empire's warriors on the Burning Plains, Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, have narrowly escaped with their lives. Still there is more at hand for the Rider and his dragon, as Eragon finds himself bound by a tangle of promises he may not be able to keep.
Event Details: Christopher Paolini's visit to campus will consist of brief remarks, followed by about 15 minutes of question-and-answer, and an on-stage book-signing. He will sign one copy of Brisingr and one backlist title per person only. Please note that no photographs will be allowed during the talk or book-signing.
