Chardon Library is kicking off GCPL’s Festival of Pop Culture with a visit and book signing event from local writer Brian McClellan, author of the popular Powder Mage Trilogy including Promise of Blood; The Crimson Campaign; and the newly released The Autumn Republic. Come in costume if you wish, but be ready for an adventure in fantasy genre with a rising-star novelist.

This event will take place on Monday, April 13 at 7 p.m. at the Chardon Library, 110 East Park Street on Chardon Square. This event is free and open to the public but registration is required.

Of special local interest is that Brian McClellan is a Geauga County Public Library patron. As a youngster, he spent many hours among the book stacks at both Chardon Library and Geauga West Library. His mother, Cheryl McClellan, is the GCPL Genealogist and works at Chardon Library. Brian dedicated his latest book The Autumn Republic to her.

Brian’s work has received strong critical acclaim. “McClellan’s debut packs some serious heat. … A thoroughly satisfying yarn that should keep readers waiting impatiently for further installments.” — Kirkus (starred review). Publishers Weekly calls his first novel: “A gritty tale of political overthrow complicated by divine retribution… [There are] sympathetic portraits of dutiful folks caught up on both sides of the rebellion.”

All GCPL locations are featuring pop culture events this spring. The lineup of other events includes:

Get pop cultured in comics: Middlefield, April 13, 6 – 7:30 p.m.
