THE ALL SOULS TRILOGY follows the journey of Diana Bishop, a young scholar and a descendant of witches, who discovers a long-lost and enchanted alchemical manuscript, Ashmole 782, deep in Oxford's Bodleian Library. Its reappearance summons a fantastical underworld, which she navigates with her leading man, vampire geneticist Matthew Clairmont. In no time, Diana and Matthew are plunged into a world of spies, magic, and danger, and as the search for Ashmole 782 deepens and Diana seeks out a witch to tutor her in magic, the net of Matthew’s past tightens around them, and they embark on a very different—and vastly more dangerous—journey. Themes of power and forbidden passion, family and caring, past deeds and their present consequences drive this intelligent, romantic and transporting saga, praised by People as “wonderfully imaginative grown-up fantasy with all the magic of Harry Potter or Twilight.”
The convention is a unique opportunity to meet the author, the outstanding narrator of the audiobooks, Jennifer Ikeda, as well as other trilogy enthusiasts. You’ll be able to enjoy AST-inspired food, wine, contests, renaissance music, and learn more about the Bodleian Library.
You can see the schedule here, but highlights include:
- Q&A sessions with Deborah Harkness and Jennifer Ikeda
- A Renaissance Music Workshop, with performances by University of Southern California musicians and featuring original compositions by Isaias Garcia
- A fan panel
