Watch Rick Riordan & James Patterson Live Online Tomorrow Night

Watch Rick Riordan & James Patterson Live Online Tomorrow Night; NYC Event to Benefit First BookTwo of our favorite children’s book authors, Rick Riordan and James Patterson, will be onstage together for the first time, at Lincoln Center in New York City tomorrow night. The two authors will read from their latest titles (including exclusive first looks) and answer questions from their fans. Al Roker, a longtime literacy advocate and co-host of the Today show, will moderate the evening.

If this sounds awesome to you, but you don’t live in New York, dry your tears! The event will be streamed live online at, and fans will be able to submit questions for the authors.

We’re excited about this event, not just because Rick Riordan and James Patterson have done so much to help First Book over the years, but because the evening’s hosts, our friends at Little, Brown Books for Young Readers and Disney Publishing Worldwide, are donating 100% of the proceeds to First Book. So this will not only be a great evening, it will help First Book get books into the hands of kids from low-income neighborhoods around the country.

    Hi Aliza,
    As far as I know, the event will be posted at the link above –

    It does not appear to be up at the moment, but hopefully that is merely a glitch or delay.
