Author Cassandra Clare appears at the 2011 National Book Festival.
Speaker Biography: Born in Tehran, Iran, to American parents, Cassandra Clare spent much of her early years traveling the world with her family, including a trek through the Himalayas as a child who spent a month living in her father's backpack. Her unique brand of fantasy fiction has earned her a worldwide audience of adoring fans. The "Mortal Instruments" series is now in its forth installment with "City of Fallen Angels" (Margaret K. McElderry). Clare says she envisioned her latest book "as an ending to the story begun in 'City of Bones,' but I soon realized that in fact where my pen was taking me was into a new trilogy."
