Fantasy in Lucca Changes: all online events

Fantasy in Lucca Changes: all online events
Since the last editions Lucca Comics & Games has promoted the fantasy genre, hosting national and international guests. In 2019 the event hosted Andrzej Sapkowski, author of the Geralt of Rivia saga, better known as The Witcher, thanks to the fame of the video game series and the Netflix TV series. The limitations given by the Coronavirus pandemic this year did not allow the Lucca Changes organization to host international authors on site, as in previous years. The organization has therefore created a lively digital schedule, which will be visible on the festival website (which you can find at this link).

The Fantasy Authors

Among the authors of the Lucca Changes online schedule will be present Terry Brooks, who announced his participation as early as September, to talk to fans about his over forty-year career. Among the most anticipated authors there will also be Cassandra Clare, author of the Shadowhunters novels, who will present her new book to the public.

Author Licia Troisi will also meet Jonathan Dtroud, author of the Bartimeus trilogy. Also present will be Chrisopher Paolini, author of the Eragon saga, Leigh Bardugo, author of the young adult GrishaVerse saga, Eoin Colfer, author of Artemis Fowl, a book that has returned to prominence thanks to the film adaptation by Disney and now available on Disney + , Shamim Sarif, author of The World Unseen and Patrick Ness, novelist author of the short story Doctor Who: Tip of the Tongue. In streaming from one of the numerous Lucca Changes campfires, the "Jolly Joker" of Turin, Luigi Cecchi aka Bigio, creator of Drizzit, will talk to R.A.
