The Carlos Museum Bookshop

The Carlos Museum and Decatur's Little Shop of Stories present Rick Riordan, author of the bestselling Percy Jackson and Heroes of Olympus series for young adults. On Thursday, October 9, at Emory's Glenn Memorial Auditorium, Mr. Riordan will talk about his new (available in stores October 7) fifth book in the Heroes of Olympus series, The Blood of Olympus. Beginning September 8, tickets to Mr. Riordan's appearance and advance orders of The Blood of Olympus will be available by contacting the Carlos Museum Bookshop at 404.727.0509 or the Little Shop of Stories in Decatur at 404.373.6300. Admission to Mr. Riordan's lecture requires advance purchase of The Blood of Olympus from either the Carlos Museum or The Little Shop of Stories. The Carlos Museum Bookshop is usually closed on Mondays, but will be open on September 8 from 11:30 to 3 for walk-in customers and phone orders. Please note that both stores have only one phone line each, messages left on voicemail may not be returned until the next day, and so both stores recommend visiting the store in person for purchases beginning September 8. For complete details, please visit the Children's and Family Program website for more information.

Through January 30, 2015, please note that the Museum Bookshop is open Tuesday through Friday 10 am to 4 pm, Saturday 11am to 5pm, and Sunday 1pm to 5 pm.
