Danny | 1 comments I'm not promoting my books but a readathon of a series of books full of Arthurian myth that a lot of you have probably heard of and might like join!

In 2013, beloved fantasy author, Susan Cooper, was given the World Fantasy Lifetime Achievement Award. Coincidentally, 2013 was also the 40th anniversary of The Dark is Rising, probably her best known book. Having been a fan of The Dark is Rising Sequence for a long time, I was thrilled at hearing her getting recognized in the SFF community and decided to host a readathon of the 5-book series starting December 7, 2013.

The response was fantastic as the Readathon brought together over 140 fans in 13 different countries and was acknowledged and promoted by Susan Cooper.

To celebrate Susan’s 80th birthday earlier this year and the 40th anniversary of the Newbery Medal-winning fourth book of the Sequence, The Grey King, the 2nd Worldwide The Dark is Rising Readathon is starting December 1, 2015.

Please consider joining readers all over the world on this fascinating journey maybe for the first time or maybe relive the magic and the myth.

Richard Graham | 6 comments for lots of information about the origins of the Arthurian myths and legends as we know them today in history, art, literature and films. Great read for kids 9-11 in particular.
