Spend a magical afternoon with Young Adult author Julie C. Dao, who will transport you to an Asian-inspired fantasy world, filled with heroines, an evil queen and dragon lords. Dao is the author of the “Rise of the Empress” series and her upcoming novel Song of the Crimson Flower. She will chat about her books and writing process.
Dao, a Vietnamese American, studied medicine in college and came to realize blood and needles were her kryptonite. By day, she worked in science news and research; by night, she wrote books about heroines unafraid to fight for their dreams. Enjoy light refreshments and a book signing. BookBar will sell books onsite. For teens and adults.
2 pm: Author Interview and Q&A
3 pm: Book signing
