This past Monday, I met one of my favorite authors in person…Cassandra Clare!! 💛👑 For her Chain of Gold book tour, one of her stops was in St. Louis (where I attend uni) so I knew I had to attend. And ASDFGHJKL I had so much fun seeing Cassie in person and meeting other fans.
Author Q&A + Book Signing
Cassandra Clare’s book signing was held by Left Bank Books, an independent book store in St. Louis and one of my personal favorite off-campus locations. 😍 It’s next to one of my favorite restaurants, Mission Taco, and Jeni’s Ice Cream, so I personally consider these three locations as my golden trio and try to visit whenever I need a break from school! 🍦
Libba Bray, the author of The Diviners series, moderated the Q&A, and she was hilariously funny! Alexandra from Twirling Pages has been telling me how much she adores the series so I’ve been meaning to pick it up. ✨ The Q&A covered topics from book publishing advice to themes of secrets, trauma, and love in Cassie’s books. (fun fact: during the edwardian era in london, many people had nipple piercings??)
