From the New York Times best-selling author of the Artemis Fowl books comes a rollicking adventure yarn just for adults: Highfire: A Novel. It's about a vodka-drinking, flashdance-loving dragon in the bayous of Louisiana, just making his way any way he can...which, of course, means the sheriff is on his tail. (Not literally, since the dragon actually has a tail.) Colfer can probably explain this better at the reading and signing. Tickets to the event include a copy of the book and a place in the autograph line.
