Best-Selling Teen Author at Library Tonight


Laini Taylor, who has written the “Daughter of Smoke and Bone” trilogy of young-adult fantasy books, will be at the Main Library from 7 to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, April 15.

The third book in the series, “Dreams of Gods and Monsters,” will be on sale at the event via Books Inc. Refreshments will be served, and there will be a raffle.

The trilogy tells the story of Karou, a teen art student in Prague raised by creatures called chimaera that require her to do bizarre tasks, while she avoids the wrath of a man with fiery eyes and wings.

The books have received awards, and a movie adaptation of “Daughter of Smoke and Bone” is being produced by Universal Pictures and Joe Roth.

Taylor, a native of Chico, Calif., studied at UC Berkeley. She now lives in Portland, Ore.
