The Magicians trilogy is already being hailed as a modern classic of fantasy literature. And a recent review in the New York Times opined that
The Magician’s Land is the strongest book in Grossman’s series. It not only offers a satisfying conclusion to Quentin Coldwater’s quests, earthly and otherwise, but also considers complex questions about identity and selfhood as profound as they are entertaining.
Mr. Grossman is also the book critic and lead technology writer for Time magazine and has written for the Village Voice, the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, Salon, Wired, and numerous other publications.
A book signing will follow the talk in Special Collections & Archives. Books will not be for sale at the library but can be pre-ordered from Bookmarks and picked up at the event.
