Tuesday, Sept 22 Diana Gabaldon at the AZ Biltmore 6 pm

Echo in the Bone, the new book in Diana's Outlander series featuring Jamie and Claire.

Diana Gabaldon's brilliant storytelling has captivated millions of readers in her bestselling and award-winning Outlander saga. Now, in An Echo in the Bone, the enormously anticipated seventh volume, Gabaldon continues the extraordinary story of the eighteenth-century Scotsman Jamie Fraser and his twentieth-century time-traveling wife, Claire Randall.

Jamie Fraser, former Jacobite and reluctant rebel, is already certain of three things about the American rebellion: The Americans will win, fighting on the side of victory is no guarantee of survival, and he'd rather die than have to face his illegitimate son-a young lieutenant in the British army-across the barrel of a gun.

Claire Randall knows that the Americans will win, too, but not what the ultimate price may be. That price won't include Jamie's life or his happiness, though-not if she has anything to say about it.

hile, in the relative safety of the twentieth century, Jamie and Claire's daughter, Brianna, and her husband, Roger MacKenzie, have resettled in a historic Scottish home where, across a chasm of two centuries, the unfolding drama of Brianna's parents' story comes to life through Claire's letters. The fragile pages reveal Claire's love for battle-scarred Jamie Fraser and their flight from North Carolina to the high seas, where they encounter privateers and ocean battles-as Brianna and Roger search for clues not only to Claire's fate but to their own. Because the future of the MacKenzie family in the Highlands is mysteriously, irrevocably, and intimately entwined with life and death in Colonial America and war looms.

Join us Tuesday, Sept 22 for the National Launch Party for Echo in the Bone, at the Arizona Biltmore, located by turning right at the second light north of the intersection of Camelback Road and 24th Street. Free parking.

There will be a cash snacks/dessert bar with cold and hot drinks. Do patronize the yummies as a thank you to the Biltmore for hosting the party.

All books to be signed must be purchased for the event from The Poisoned Pen. You can reserve now. Books will be brought to the hotel for you to pick up at the party or for purchase there.

You will be able to follow your ears to the Grand Ballroom at the Arizona Biltmore Resort by listening for the Piper in Jacobean dress who will pipe Diana to the podium for her program.
