Fall Author Series James Rollins


Join the Des Moines Public Library and Beaverdale Books for an evening with James Rollins. Rollins is the No. 1 New York Times bestselling author of international thrillers that have been translated into more than 40 languages. His Sigma series has been lauded as one of the “top crowd pleasers” (New York Times) and one of the “hottest summer reads” (People). In each novel, acclaimed for its originality, Rollins unveils unseen worlds, scientific breakthroughs, and historical secrets—and he does it all at breakneck speed and with stunning insight. He lives in the Sierra Nevada mountains.

Rollins will stop at Central Library during his tour for the launch of the latest book in his Sigma Force series, Tides of Fire. In this riveting thriller, an international research station in the Coral Sea comes under siege during a geological disaster that triggers massive quakes, deadly tsunamis, and volcanic eruptions. To stop the world from burning, it’s up to Sigma Force to uncover a secret buried at the heart of our planet.

Beaverdale Books will have copies available for sale and signing.
