lib_book3 6:30 PM  -  7:30 PM Author Talk: The Grace of Kings by Ken Liu Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Ames Free Library   508-238-2000   info@amesfreelibrary.org
   

The Ames Free Library Author Talk Series is proud to present Ken Liu, author of The Grace of Kings.

Two men rebel together against tyranny—and then become rivals—in this first sweeping book of an epic fantasy series from Ken Liu, recipient of Hugo, Nebula, and World Fantasy awards.
 
Polar opposites, bandit Kuni Garu, and son of a deposed duke Mata Zyndu, become best friends after a series of adventures fighting against vast conscripted armies, silk-draped airships, and shapeshifting gods. Once the emperor has been overthrown, however, they each find themselves the leader of separate factions—two sides with very different ideas about how the world should be run and the meaning of justice.
 
Fans of intrigue, intimate plots, and action will find a new series to embrace in the Dandelion Dynasty.
 
Free and open to all!
 
Ken Liu’s fiction has appeared in Asimov’s, Analog, Strange Horizons, Lightspeed, and Clarkesworld, among others. He has won a Nebula, two Hugos, a World Fantasy Award, a Science Fiction & Fantasy Translation Award, and been nominated for the Sturgeon and the Locus Awards. His wife, Lisa Tang Liu, is an artist. He lives in Stoughton with his family.
