Dragon Tales

Between Mark Zuckerberg, Justin Bieber and the coming-of-age Harry Potter cast, there’s no denying the endless potential of a zealous teenager. Author Christopher Paolini is no exception.

The sprightly scribe published his first novel and New York Times bestseller, Eragon, at the age of 19. At the Burton Barr Library, Paolini, now 28, will sign and discuss his newest novel, Inheritance, which is the final book in the four-part Inheritance Cycle.

After a 45-minute presentation, Paolini will sign the new book, as well as his other novels -- Eragon, Eldest, and Brisingr. In the vein of Beowulf, the fantasy series features dragons, evil kings, and, of course, the impending doom of a civilization.
