Patrick Rothfuss at the UWM Union Ballroom
Boswell Book Company and the UWM Bookstore are excited to present a ticketed event at the UWM Union Ballroom featuring the genius behind The Kingkiller Chronicles, Wisconsinite Patrick Rothfuss, who will read from, discuss, and sign copies of his latest epic fantasy novel following Auri, one of The Kingkiller Chronicle's most enigmatic characters. Full of secrets and mysteries, The Slow Regard of Silent Things is the story of a broken girl trying to live in a broken world. Tickets are $22 (includes a copy of The Slow Regard of Silent Things and all taxes and fees) and available through Brown Paper Tickets. This event is co-sponsored by the UWM Bookstore. The UWM Union Ballroom is located 2200 East Kenwood Avenue in Milwaukee.
Deep below the University, there is a dark place. Few people know of it: a broken web of ancient passageways and abandoned rooms. A young woman lives there, tucked among the sprawling tunnels of the Underthing, snug in the heart of this forgotten place. Her name is Auri, and she is full of mysteries. The Slow Regard of Silent Things is a brief, bittersweet glimpse of Auri's life, a small adventure all her own. At once joyous and haunting, this story offers a chance to see the world through Auri's eyes.
"As seamless and lyrical as a song...This breathtakingly epic story is heartrending in its intimacy and masterful in its narrative essence." Publishers Weekly
"It is a rare and great pleasure to find a fantasist writing...with true music in the words...Wherever Pat Rothfuss goes...he'll carry us with him as a good singer carries us through a song." Ursula K. LeGuin
Patrick Rothfuss currently lives in central Wisconsin where he teaches at the local university. Patrick loves words, laughs often, and dabbles in alchemy.
