Jim Butcher on campus Sept. 28 for Evening with an Author

Jim Butcher, the New York Times bestselling author of The Dresden Files and The Codex Alera, will be speaking on the Colorado State University campus Sept. 28 at 7 p.m. as a part of the Evening with an Author Series.

This event is free and open to the public, in the Lory Student Center Ballroom, with seating on a first-come, first-serve basis. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

The Aeronaut’s Windlass is the first book in Butcher’s new steampunk series, The Cinder Spires, set in a world of magic, warriors, heroes, alliances, airships and intelligent cats. The Dresden Files, Butcher’s first published fiction, follows the adventures of Chicago’s only professional wizard, Harry Dresden. A TV series based on the books lasted one season on the Syfy channel; fans eagerly await the 16th book in the series.
