Rick Riordan Came to Little Shop!

We had a great time during Rick Riordan's third trip to Decatur. Around 1,000 came over to the Rec Center on Monday afternoon to hear Rick talk about his Percy Jackson books, the upcoming movie, and what he's working on next.

Besides writing great books, Rick is simply a great guy. Despite being on the road for two weeks and on the second to last leg of his tour, he took his time connecting to the kids and answering questions. Thanks, Rick!!!

Little Shop would also like to thank Hyperion Books, the Decatur Recreation Center, the folks at Decatur Active Living, and Joe Davich and Georgia Center for the Book, for helping us put on this event.

For those of you who could not make it, we have a few signed copies of The Last Olympian left, as well as The Demigod Files. Also, there are some Last Olympian T-Shirts left.
