Eoin Colfer – The Eoin Colfer Tour Bus!

To mark the publication of the new title in the series, Artemis Fowl and the Time Paradox, the celebrated author and stand-up performer Eoin Colfer is taking his live show on tour throughout the US this summer! Eoin Colfer gives audiences a hilarious insight into the inspiration for the teenage criminal mastermind, Artemis Fowl: “The ex-teacher’s lesson is the frothy tale of his childhood and his mischievous siblings, illustrated by beautifully evocative photographs . . . our amiable, pixie-like host is never dull.” (Evening Standard, Four Stars). The tour will also give Artemis’ legion of fans an opportunity to meet the author and have their newly published copies of Artemis Fowl and the Time Paradox personally signed.
