We are sorry to announce that Thomas Lennon is unable to come to Hicklebee's on his originally scheduled date. We will announce his new date and time as soon as we can.
Hicklebee's will be hosting Hollywood actor and writer Thomas Lennon and the first novel in his debut middle grade series, Ronan Boyle and the Bridge of Riddles. Just in time for St. Patrick's Day!
Fourteen-year-old Ronan Boyle is the youngest and lowliest recruit to the secret Garda, an Irish police force that handles the misdeeds of numerous magical creatures. Ronan’s parents are in jail, but Ronan is convinced that they were framed by the wee people. So, despite his small size, poor eyesight, and social awkwardness, he’s determined to learn all he can in the Garda in order to prove his parents’ innocence. To show he’s got what it takes, he’ll have to confront a fiery leprechaun, a sinister harpy, and a whole world of monsters hidden in plain sight next to real-life Ireland.
Thomas Lennon is a writer, comedian, and actor who has worked on a number of things you probably love, including Reno 911! and Night at the Museum. Lennon lives in Los Angeles with his wife, the actress Jenny Robertson, and their son, Oliver.
"Perhaps the finest children's novel of all time (in the ever-burgeoning leprechaun crime-drama sub-genre). Equal parts JK Rowling and Douglas Adams, which, y’know… ain’t a bad thing."
"A touching, funny read for smart kids young and old. Flat-out laughed out loud!”
"Actor/screenwriter Lennon (the Night at the Museum series) makes a spirited debut with this mythology-laden tale . . . the memorable voice and playful sensibility make this an entertaining series opener."
