An Evening with Diana Gabaldon and guest host to be announced. Presented in partnership with The National Cherry Festival.

The adventure began in 1991 with Diana Gabaldon’s first novel, Outlander, which became a wildly popular historical, sci-fi, adventure, romance, non-fiction and fantasy series. Readers have been hanging on the edge of their seats ever since for the next thrilling installment of Claire and Jamie’s story. The seven book series has sold more than 20 million copies and has been published in 26 countries and 23 languages, worldwide.

In the eighth and latest installment, Written in my Own Heart’s Blood, Jamie and Claire’s story continues as it follows Gabaldon’s characters through revolutionary Philadelphia and onto the battlefields, as Jamie makes a dramatic return to Claire’s side, a new army sweeps the city, and romance and violence brew. This enthralling adventure carries us through betrayal and redemption, death and danger and through the perilous waves of a family’s loves and loyalties.

In addition to the Outlander Series Gabaldon has also written several books in a sub-series featuring Lord John Grey in the Lord John Series, a collection of short fiction, and a graphic novel titled The Exile. She is also working on a contemporary mystery series, set in Phoenix. Her book A Breath of Snow and Ashes, won a Quill Award and the Corinne International Book Prize.

A TV series based on the Outlander series is currently filming and will premiere on Starz in 2014.

Galbadon has earned three degrees: a B.S. in Zoology, a M.S. in Marine Biology and a Ph.D in Ecology.
