Who is Artemis Fowl? Just the awesomest teenage criminal mastermind ever, and you can enter his amazing world at Artemis Rocks!, hosted by author Eoin Colfer, a touring talk show based on his series of fantasy books. While Artemis' adventures often take him to the Lower Elements, home of fairies and LEPrecons (“Lower Elements Police Reconnaissance”), this event takes him to the Pasadena Playhouse, where Colfer previews the series' latest installment, Artemis Fowl: The Atlantis Complex, and even interviews the young criminal himself. Turns out Artemis saves the world. Again. Tickets available at Vroman's Bookstore, 695 E. Colorado Blvd., Pasadena. (626) 449-5320.
