The Alchemist Live with Paulo Coelho

I’m not sure if you’ve ever read The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, but chances are you have. It’s been on the New York Times Best Sellers List for over 50 weeks (that’s almost a year!). And it’s about to celebrate its 20th Anniversary. So the reason why I bring this up… for the past few months I’ve been working on a project that will culminate in an online event September 17th, 2008.

Here’s the lowdown:

It’s called, THE ALCHEMIST LIVE. Basically Paulo is going to talk to everyone, everywhere about The Alchemist. It’s a historic event because Paulo doesn’t usually talk about his book in this way. It’s going to take place on BlogTalkRadio – The AuthorsOnAir channel- so you can call in from your phone or listen online. There’s going to be a question and answer session with callers, and also a special guest (I’ll let you know who when the date gets closer).

The nitty gritty:

The Alchemist Live
September 17th, 2008
12 noon PT / 3PM EST / anywhere else in the world corresponding with those times!
Phone: (347) 945-6141

Here’s a promo video HarperOne produced with Paulo for the event:

Here’s a fun little countdown widget you can share, if you’re so inclined!

    The theme of the book, to pursue ones passions and realize ones dreams, is exemplified here at teamjaded in every project you take on. Whether it is with projects like Make It Happen, where you showed us stories of what it looks like when different kinds of people across America pursued their passions. Or with teamjaded itself. You have dutifully documented the joys and struggles of your journey to realize your dream of creating a self-sufficient production company. Good call teamjaded.

    Also, Abby I hope you’re doing better! I didn’t see a blog entry about you being sick.
