• “The smartest historical sci-fi adventure-romance story ever written by a science Ph.D. with a background in scripting 'Scrooge McDuck' comics.”—Salon.com
  • A time-hopping, continent-spanning salmagundi of genres.”
    —ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

Appearances


2012 AZ Ren Fest

I always enjoy meeting you guys, but I’m (still!) trying as hard as possible—with mixed results—NOT to travel much through 2019 and early 2020, so I can stay home and get the next book written in my Outlander series of novels (BEES). <wry g>

This webpage is my official list of my upcoming public appearances. It is updated as information becomes available for release. For the most current information about an event, please consult the event host’s webpage listed here.

If you have questions about—or problems with—obtaining tickets for an event, please contact the listed host organization of the event. All ticket sales are handled by event organizers and their ticket brokers.

My schedule can change from week to week, so please bookmark this page and check back often for new additions.

And also keep in mind that many events will sell out quickly, sometimes in only hours—or even minutes!—after the tickets are released for sale.

Thanks!

-Diana

River Cruise Information
Provider: Avalon Cruises
Ship: Avalon Expression

Note from Diana on April 14, 2019:

In June, 2019, I couldn’t go anywhere because I was finishing BEES. But in June, 2020, I’ll be going on a river cruise:

“Romantic Rhine Author Cruise With Diana Gabaldon (Northbound) 2020,”, an eight-day river cruise from Basel to Amsterdam.

(And in case you’re wondering, no, I don’t have any financial interests in Avalon or this particular cruise. They’re paying transportation costs for me and my husband, period. We’ve sailed with them three times so far, and always enjoy it!)

-Diana

Bound to be the most memorable trip of 2020 (or a lifetime), author of the No. 1 New York Times-bestselling OUTLANDER series Diana Gabaldon is exclusively hosting an AUTHOR CRUISE with Avalon Waterways on the Rhine River in 2020. It’s your chance to get insider OUTLANDER insight, with your favorite author… FOR A WEEK!

On the June 9, 2020 departure of the Romantic Rhine cruise from Basel to Amsterdam, this inspiring storyteller will share an inspired cruise — and daily excursions — with an intimate group of her fans.

General Information – Appearances

Please keep the following in mind:

  • If tickets are required for an event, they may be free or require a fee which goes to the hosting organization or sponsor. Tickets for ALL events featuring Diana usually sell out very quickly once they become available.
  • Sometimes Diana’s Webmistress doesn’t receive information and details about events in a timely manner, and can’t post what she doesn’t have. Event hosts featuring Diana are strongly encouraged to notify Diana’s Webmistress when they post an event with Diana, and also dates when tickets will go on sale so that readers will be kept informed.
  • PLEASE CHECK WITH THE HOSTING ORGANIZATION OR SPONSOR of an appearance or event OFTEN for the latest information, ticketing, venue changes, policies and updates! This list is provided as a convenience and my webmistress works hard to keep it current, but it may not always be perfectly up-to-date.
  • If you have questions about an appearance or need more details, please contact the host organization or sponsor listed, not myself or my staff. The hosts or sponsors do the event planning and have all the answers. Thanks!
  • Diana is always happy to sign and personalize your books at signing events as time allows. However, note that some events and venues may require a book purchase or have a limit on how many books you can bring from home for signing. Please check with the event host or sponsor if details are not listed on this webpage.
