You know Eoin Colfer (pronounced Owen) from his New York Times bestselling blockbuster series Artemis Fowl as well as Airman, Half Moon Investigations, The Supernaturalist, and The Wish List. And he was named Ireland’s Laureate for children’s literature in 2014
Eoin Colfer’s Artemis Fowl series gained a huge worldwide readership for its mix of hilarious mayhem and snarky humor. Artemis Fowl, the boy-genius criminal mastermind, deals with fantastical beings and megalomaniacal villains in madcap adventures over eight book. There’s a movie due for release in May 2020 directed by Kenneth Branagh and starring Judi Dench (you can see the trailer here) and a series of graphic novels.
Hearing that there will be more stories in the Artemis Fowl universe is a reason to celebrate and we couldn’t be more excited to celebrate with Eoin when he visits to introduce his new book, The Fowl Twins., which follows Artemis’ young twin brothers Myles and Beckett. They’re left alone for just one night and end up having to save a troll from a nefarious nobleman and an interrogating nun – each of whom need the magical creature for their own gain, as well as a fairy-in-training who has been assigned to protect him.
Don’t miss this opportunity to meet Eoin Colfer and rediscover the joy of falling into the Artemis Fowl universe once again.
