Have you heard about the multi-media book series entitled, The 39 Clues, which debuts on September 9th? This groundbreaking series combines reading, on-line gaming and card collecting. If you haven't heard about it yet, you will, as Stephen Spielberg has already picked up the movie rights. The books haven't even been released yet!

A Children's Place (Portland, Oregon) has the exclusive honor of hosting celebrated Young Adult author, Rick Riordan, of Percy Jackson fame. Mr. Riordan is the first author of The 39 Clues series. His book,The Maze of Bones, will be released on September 9th when the on-line gaming will also begin.

Rick Riordan will be speaking and signing at A Children's Place on Monday, September 15th at 7 pm. Due to the excitement of this signing, it will be a ticketed event. Tickets are the price of the book, $12.99, will provide you with one book and admit 3 to the event. Tickets are on sale now at the store. Or, you can call the store (503) 284-8294 to charge and reserve your tickets and books.

Since the on-line gaming begins on the release date, September 9th, you will be able to pick up the book on the 9th and bring it back to be signed on the 15th. At the event, you will also be able to have one other book signed.

I hear alot about on-line gaming. I'd imagine those books will fly off the shelves, he's tapped into some great pop culture with that book.

This is how out of the loop and uncool I am:

When our baby-sitter said she was into "gaming" I thought it had something to do with hunting or fishing or wildlife.

In my defense, she was from Alaska.

Have fun at the event. Don't let harm come to any animals, okay?
