George O’Connor Reads ASGARDIANS: ODIN at Bookshop Santa Cruz

Thursday, March 28, 5-6pm

FREE IN-STORE EVENT: Bookshop welcomes bestselling author George O’Connor to the store for a reading and signing of his new graphic novel Asgardians: Odin, which Kirkus, in a starred review, called, “A rainbow bridge to a fresh set of mythological places and faces.”

Following the smash-hit Olympians series, George O’Connor embarks on a new saga about the Norse gods. This first volume tells the story of the warrior god Odin!

Welcome to the Nine Worlds, home of Gods, Valkyries, Dwarves, Jotnar, and more! Travel the burning rainbow bridge to Asgard, where Odin, chief of the Aesir, surveys his realm. His thirst for knowledge drives him ever onward, but nothing is learned without sacrifice . . .

In Asgardians, George O’Connor’s highly kinetic illustrations bring these gritty and astonishing tales of war, betrayal, and the quest for enlightenment at any cost to vivid and startling life and provide the perfect companion to his Olympians series.

George O’Connor is the New York Times-bestselling author of Olympians, the series of graphic novels featuring the tragic, dramatic, and epic lives of the Greek Gods. His first graphic novel, Journey into Mohawk Country, pushed the boundaries of the genre, using as its sole text the actual historical journal of the seventeenth-century Dutch trader Harmen Meyndertsz van den Bogaert. He also illustrated acclaimed playwright Adam Rapp’s Ball Peen Hammer. He teamed up with writer Daniel G. Newman on Unrig: How to Fix Our Broken Democracy, the first volume in the World Citizen Comics series. George is also the creator of popular picture books such as the New York Times-bestselling Kapow! and If I Had a Triceratops. He lives in Brooklyn, New York.
