Alpha and Beta have been following the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series by Rick Riordan almost since the books first came out.
To kick off the latest series, Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard, Mr. Riordan hosted a Q&A / talk in downtown Boston that Meghan and the girls attended. They got signed copies of the book, and some swag, to boot.
When I went to pick them up, there was no question I was in the right spot: as I watched, a sudden stream of very happy people holding ‘Magnus Chase’ foam shields appeared on the side walk. The event was sold out and the auditorium was standing-room-only.
