The Philomel Traveling Book Fair


Come visit The Philomel Book Fair and discover worlds you’ve only imagined! Among our favorite stories are Anthony Horowitz's Alex Rider novels, a catalyst for a whole new generation of spy fiction lovers; Mike Lupica's sports-centered novels, such as Million-Dollar Throw, that capture the purity of the 14-year-old sports fanatic in everyone, young or old; and John Flanagan's Ranger's Apprentice epic, the fantasy/adventure series that brings readers into the hearts and minds of those who defend a kingdom through courage, skill, and cunning. The Philomel list includes many timeless fantasies, including Brian Jacques's Redwall Tales, a series now more than twenty books deep—including an illustrated cookbook and a graphic novel. T.A. Barron's fantasy epic The Lost Years of Merlin sowed the seeds for two companion trilogies, The Great Tree of Avalon and Merlin's Dragon. Find out when we’re coming to your town, pull up an armchair and discover a brand new world!
