BAR HARBOR — New York Times-bestselling fantasy author Kristen Britain, who began the Green Rider series while she was a park ranger at Acadia National Park, will visit the Jesup Memorial Library on Friday, May 12, at 7 p.m. with the sixth book in the series, “Firebrand.”
The Green Rider series is widely known for its immersive world-building and memorable characters, including one of epic fantasy’s first female protagonists, Karigan G’ladheon. Through five previous installments, fans have followed Karigan, a runaway schoolgirl who finds herself in deep peril when she agrees to bear a message to the king for a dying Green Rider.
Britain, a protégé of best-selling author Terry Goodkind, is now a full-time writer but for decades worked as a national park ranger. This background gives her a unique understanding of wildlife environments and gives her work a realistic feeling of nature replete with all its beauty and dangers. Her books have been published in seven languages and are internationally best-selling. Visit kristenbritain.com.
Books will be on sale that night courtesy of co-sponsor Sherman’s Books, with a portion of the proceeds donated to the library. Contact the Jesup at 288-4245 or [email protected].
