Christopher Paolini, the New York Times bestselling author of Eragon, visits the Burton Barr Central Library to discuss and sign Inheritance, the fourth and final book in the worldwide best-selling series that began with Eragon, Eldest, and Brisingr.

Not so very long ago, Eragon— Shadeslayer, Dragon Rider— was nothing more than a poor farm boy, and his dragon, Saphira, only a blue stone in the forest. Now the fate of an entire civilization rests on their shoulders. Long months of training and battle have brought victories and hope, but they have also brought heartbreaking loss. And still, the real battle lies ahead: they must confront Galbatorix. When they do, they will have to be strong enough to defeat him. And if they cannot, no one can. There will be no second chances. The Rider and his dragon have come further than anyone dared to hope. But can they topple the evil king and restore justice to Alagaesia? And if so, at what cost?

Christopher was homeschooled by his parents, and 15 when he graduated high school via a correspondence course and completed the first draft of Eragon, which he and his family self-published in 2001. By 2003, when Alfred A. Knopf Books for Young Readers published Eragon, it was an instant worldwide bestseller. To date, Eragon has been published in 49 languages and the first three books of the series have sold more than 25 million copies worldwide. More »
