Magicians trivia contest with prizes starts at 7:00
Lev Grossman is the book reviewer for Time Magazine and a widely published cultural critic, as well as a Fort Greene neighbor. He is the author of the bestselling Magicians trilogy, which opened with The Magicians (“Stirring, complex, adventurous…[a] superb coming of age fantasy.” – Junot Diaz), and its sequel The Magician King (“a spellbinding stereograph, a literary adventure novel that is also about privilege, power and the limits of being human.” – NPR). Legions of fans now await The Magician's Land, a novel full of the subversive brilliance that has put Grossman at the forefront of modern fantasy, which will bring the Magicians trilogy to a shattering, triumphant conclusion, and Greenlight is thrilled to host the book’s official launch. Grossman will be joined by fellow acclaimed fantasy writers Michelle Hodkin (the Mara Dyer trilogy), Lauren Oliver (Before I Fall and the Delirium trilogy), Margaret Stohl (Beautiful Creatures), Erin Morgenstern (The Night Circus), and Lev’s twin brother Austin Grossman (Soon I Will Be Invincable, You) among others, for a dramatic presentation and discussion of the new novel. The formal event will be preceded by a Magicians trivia contest at 7:00 PM, with Magicians-related swag for the most knowledgeable fans.
