TV Shows from Books: Outlander

I know you’re probably wondering if I talk/write about anything else except Diana Gabaldon’s amazing Outlander series, and the answer is: Not much else. But this is important! Season 3 of the television series premieres on Sunday, September 10 at 8 p.m. on Starz (Finally! No more #Droughtlander!).

I’m a slow reader, so I know I won’t have enough time between now and September 10 to reread Voyager (the third book in the series), but there are several ways around this with help from the Aurora Public Library District.

We have Seasons 1 and 2 of the television series available for check out! Re-watch your favorite episodes or binge-watch the first two seasons (No judgement here!) so you’ll be ready to go for Season 3! DVDs check out for one week without renewals, but if you need more time, you can always bring the DVD back to the branch and we’ll check it back out to you.

Reread your favorite scenes from Voyager by checking out a hard copy of the book or a digital copy from the Indiana Digital Download Center. You can also check out an audiobook if you don’t have the time to sit down and read. The Aurora Public Library District has recently acquired new paperback copies of the first four books that are just dying to be checked out by you!

Maybe you need to reread the last few chapters of Dragonfly in Amber to remind yourself what happened in the last few episodes (Because it’s been so long since the end of Season 2 and so much happened!) so you’ll be prepared for the first episode of Season 3!

The September 1 issue of Entertainment Weekly featured the cast of Outlander to make people like me even more excited for the new season. Magazines are available for checkout for two weeks with up to two renewals, just like books.

You can creep obsess scroll through the actors’ various social media accounts to see pictures, videos, and captions promoting the new season or what they’re up to in their day-to-day lives. I recommend searching Instagram and Twitter for the actors’ names.

If you want to take it to the next level of fandom, there is actually a Scottish festival in Columbus, Indiana during the same weekend (September 9 and 10). That will really get you in the mood for the premiere of Season 3! Follow the link for ticket information, driving directions, schedule of events, and more.

Season 1 follows the events of the first book, Season 2 follows the second book, and Season 3 will follow the third book. As far as I can tell, both seasons have followed the books rather closely and I’m sure Season 3 will be no different. I’m having a viewing party with some others who are as obsessed excited as me and I can’t wait!

Happy Watching!
