TORTALL: A SPY’S GUIDE Appearances

It’s just about time for the release of Tortall: A Spy’s Guide!  If you’ll be in the New York City area on Monday, October 30th, try to stop by the launch event at Books of Wonder, where you will meet Tammy and her Spy’s Guide co-authors, Julie Holderman, Timothy Liebe, and Megan Messinger. The event will run from 6 pm – 8pm, and will be the only chance to pick up a physical copy of Spy’s Guide before the official October 31st release!

Of course, if you can’t make it to Books of Wonder, there will be plenty of other opportunities to see Tammy. Check the Events page for a schedule of all upcoming appearances.

NYCC 2017: Extraordinary Enchantments

Earlier this month, Tammy joined authors Lisa MaxwellKatherine ArdenK. Arsenault RiveraS.A. Chakraborty, and V. E. Schwab at New York Comic Con, to speak on the Extraordinary Enchantments panel:

“Fantasy is the realm of idealism,” Pierce said. “Science fiction is the realm of the future. We can game out how the future is going to grow from the seeds we have now. But fantasy is about idealism, is about justice, is about the effects of the rule of law, is about the effects of tyranny, is about the effects of poverty; and we put these things in fantasy so that readers don’t feel preached at.”

Tamora Pierce Videos Playlist on YouTube

We’ve just created a “Tamora Pierce Videos” Playlist on YouTube, under Tim’s YouTube Account. It currently includes Tammy’s Margaret A. Edwards Award acceptance speech from 2013, and the nine-part Supanova Sydney panel “Writer’s Roundtable – What Are You Reading Now?” featuring Tammy, Anne Bishop, Maria Lewis, Alison Goodman, Keri Arthur, and Ian Irvine, moderated by Supanova’s Literary Manager, Ineke Prochazka.

Future clips from panels, and other recordings of Tammy’s appearances, will appear as either Tim cuts them into something manageable, or other people ask that they be added….

Tamora Pierce Comes to Denmark

The popular American fantasy author Tamora Pierce has made a lasting impact on the entire fantasy genre with her strong heroines and feminist themes. In March 2015, she pays her first visit to Denmark.

Tamora Pierce’s debut novel series The Song of the Lioness from 1983 tells the story of the girl Alanna, who switches identities with her twin brother, trains to become a knight, and proves her worth – despite being ‘just’ a girl. Strong heroines, feminist themes and exciting, well-constructed plots have since become a staple of Tamora Pierce’s fantasy novels, which have now entertained and inspired generations of readers around the globe – including Denmark.

In March 2015, Tamora Pierce will pay her first visit to Denmark, where her Danish publishers, Tellerup, will be proud to welcome her as the guest of honor at Fantasyfestival 2015.

Fantasyfestival is a brand new initiative from The Libraries of Esbjerg Municipality and variety of collaborators. The festival will take place at Esbjerg Conference Hotel on March 7-8, 2015 and will be the greatest event for fantasy enthusiasts ever held in Denmark. It will offer a wealth of opportunities to meet fantasy authors and visit booths and activities covering all aspects of the fantasy scene.
