James Riley, the New York Times bestselling author of the Half Upon a Time series, takes an in-depth look at the wonder and absolute weirdness of fairy tales, why we love them and what it must be like to try to reconstitute an egg using only horse hooves. Spoiler alert: It can't be easy. He'll also do a reading from his fairy tale series, just to prove he knows what he's talking about, but we're not willing to commit one way or another on that last point. 

Join the Virginia G. Piper Center for Creative Writing for Fractured Fairy Tales: How to Fix Humpty Dumpty Even If You’re a King’s Horse with James Riley on Wednesday, September 23, 2020 from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Zoom.

Riley will also be teaching a workshop, Writing for Children for Fun and (Very Little) Profit. More details about Riley's workshop will be announced soon.

About the Author
James Riley is the New York Times bestselling author of the "Half Upon a Time" series, the "Story Theives" series, and the "Revenge of Magic" series. He currently lives in Northern Virginia, outside of Washington, D.C., because that’s where his cats are. He has three of them. Other people think that’s a bit much, and yet, he wants more. More. MORE!

When an individual dies, what happens to their body? What are the rules that decide whether their body becomes the object of a forensic examination? In addition, who are the individuals involved in this process? In this talk, you will learn about the roles of the professionals involved in death investigations and the rules that guide them as they work to uncover and document evidence obtained from the human body.

About our event

“Communities” are often presented as divisive groupings that pit one set of interests against another. In a time when individuals self-report increasing loneliness and anxiety, community can provide companionship and support. Our event seeks to focus on that transformational power and what communities can achieve. Our speakers, ranging from researchers, to students, to performers, will explore their own discoveries and the value of shared experiences. We hope audience members will examine their own understanding of community, recognize the transformative nature of connections and proactively seek out methods of engagement.

COVID-19 Update

In an effort to keep our community safe, our team has decided to shift TEDxASUWest 2020: Community Transformed to a virtual format via YouTube Live. We are always looking for innovative ways to share ideas worth spreading and we are excited to be able to bring our event to you wherever you may be!
