Out of the Shadows: Cassandra Clare
Jun 04, 2017, 12:15 PM – 1:15 PM
Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy. The Shadowhunters. Lady Midnight. And now, Lord of Shadows. Cassandra Clare’s books have more than 50 million copies in print worldwide and have been translated into more than 35 languages, a feature film, and a TV show – and now you can see her live on stage at BookCon. Clare is thrilled to share insight into her newest book, Lord of Shadows, in which Emma Carstairs has finally avenged her parents. Hear Clare’s thoughts about why she wanted Emma, Julian, and Mark to find a way to come together to defend everything they hold dear before it’s too late. She will be interviewed by Crystal Bell of MTV News.
If you do attend one or both events please share lots of photos on social media 🙂
