P&P Live! Rick Riordan-The Tower of Nero—with Yoon Ha Lee

Upcoming Event
Friday, October 9, 2020 - 6:00pm


We have reached capacity for this event.

At last, the breathtaking, action-packed finale of the bestselling Trials of Apollo series is here!

Will the Greek god Apollo, cast down to earth in the pathetic moral form of a teenager named Lester Papadopoulos, finally regain his place on Mount Olympus? Lester's demigod friends at Camp Jupiter just helped him survive attacks from bloodthirsty ghouls, an evil Roman king and his army of the undead, and the lethal emperors Caligula and Commodus. Now the former god and his demigod master Meg must follow a prophecy uncovered by Ella the harpy. Lester's final challenge will be at the Tower of Nero, back in New York. Will Meg have a last showdown with her father? Will this helpless form of Apollo have to face his arch nemesis, Python? Who will be on hand at Camp Half-Blood to assist? These questions and more will be answered in this book that all demigods are eagerly awaiting.

Join Rick Riordan as he discusses all of this and more! This virtual event will feature unique content and conversation including an on-camera challenge and live Q&A.

Rick will be joined by special guest Yoon Ha Lee, author of Dragon Pearl, for conversation and a special challenge!

Purchase of The Tower of Nero from Politics and Prose is required to attend the event. Attendees will receive a signed copy of The Tower of Nero and an exclusive baseball cap.
