Christopher Paolini Set to Head Billings Holiday Parade on a Saphira-Inspired Float

How’s this for cool news? The Billings Gazette is reporting that Christopher Paolini has been chosen to lead the Billings Holiday Parade as the honorary grand marshal! Christopher will ride on a dragon-themed holiday float at the start of the parade, joined by writing competition winners (who he will be having dinner with prior to the parade).

Christopher will end the night with a book signing taking place after the parade at Barjon’s in Billings. The book store will be closing off the street in front of the store “for live exhibitions by the Society of Creative Anachronism, including a demonstration of making chainmail armor.” The signing is open to the public and is a part of Christopher’s post-Inheritance North American book tour!

We’ll be sure to post photos and information from the event once it happens!
