An Evening with Cassandra Clare

An Evening with Cassandra Clare

Join one of the world’s most successful fantasy fiction authors, Cassandra Clare, as she tours the UK and Ireland for a limited run of dates, to share an exclusive event edition of The Last Hours: Chain of Gold. If you aren't able to join Cassandra in person, fear not! This tour has an 'Access All Areas' virtual pass, which will give you access to a global livestream of the Chester Storyhouse event, a signed* event edition of Chain of Gold (RRP £14.99), and exclusive behind-the-scenes content.

Cassandra is synonymous with young adult fantasy fiction and is best known for the internationally bestselling Dark Artifices trilogy, Mortal Instruments series, and Infernal Devices trilogy.

In conversation for these exclusive events, the #1 New York Times bestselling author will explore her much-loved Shadowhunter series, discussing the Carstairs siblings, their unique challenges across the book series, and the angst and pain of romance. Cassandra will consider how her stories are inspired by both mythology and real-world events, and what is next for the Shadowhunter world: in books, television, graphic novels and more! Plus, you’ll hear the story told by the author herself as she gives a fun, dramatic live reading from the series.

With the chance to ask the author your own burning questions, purchase an exclusive signed* event edition of Chain of Gold, and a post-show photo opportunity with Cassandra herself, this promises to be the perfect evening for super-fans of Cassandra’s magical books.

These evenings celebrate the special event edition of the first book in the Shadowhunter series, The Last Hours: Chain of Gold. Signed* copies of the event edition will be available to purchase at each event (and are included in the 'Access All Areas' virtual tickets). This special edition of Chain of Gold has a beautiful silhouette cut-paper art jacket, created to match a special edition of Chain of Iron, first designed for our Fane Online event with Cassandra in 2021. The special event edition of Chain of Iron will also be available to purchase at each live event, and you can also order online here. Please note these books will not be signed.

The third book in the series, The Last Hours: Chain of Thorns, will be published in 2023. 

The event at Storyhouse Chester on 13 July will be live streamed via Fane Online. Worldwide viewing is available and the stream will be available for one week on demand after the initial broadcast, so you can watch at anytime if the initial broadcast time doesn't suit your timezone.

The virtual 'Access All Areas: book, stream and exclusive behind-the-scenes' package is deliverable to any UK or International address, and will include an exclusive signed* edition of Chain of Gold (RRP £14.99), a unique ticket to the live stream, and the following exclusive backstage content from Cassandra:

- A special short reading by Cassandra from one of her books

- An exclusive Q & A session with Cassandra

- Behind the scenes video content, filmed on tour 

*Please note, each event edition will come with a bookplate signed by Cassandra. Books will be dispatched to customers w/c 11 July, and all backstage content will be released to customers via the Fane TV app throughout the tour (exact dates TBC).
