Marie Rutkoski
Cassandra Clare

We celebrated Tax Day with Russian beer at a Socialist bar and fabulous fiction (how else should one spend Tax Day?).  Marie Rutkoski read selections from her The Cabinet of Wonders, and Cassandra Clare read her stort story from Geektastic: Stories from the Nerd Herd, edited by Holly Black and due out in August.  When Cassandra stopped reading her story before the end, the audience protested and made her reascend to the podium to finish. Ellen’s photos can be seen here.
