New York Times best-selling author Mary Jane Clark appears at the National Book Festival.
Speaker Biography: New York Times best-selling author Mary Jane Clark has written 12 novels, all set in the high-stakes world of broadcast journalism, including "Dying for Mercy" (2009). Clark's real-world assignments have informed her writing: Clark worked at CBS News headquarters in New York for three decades, and that experience led her to create KEY, a fictional television network. Covering the 1992 presidential conventions led to the idea for her first book, "Do You Want to Know a Secret?" The anthrax scares at all three U.S. network news headquarters in 2001 inspired "Nowhere to Run" (2003). She lives in New Jersey and Florida.
