Victoria Schwab


Victoria Schwab is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of several novels for young adults and adults, including City of Ghosts, the Shades of Magic series (which has been translated into over 15 languages), This Savage Song, and Our Dark Duet. Victoria lives in Nashville, TN, but she can often be found haunting Paris streets and trudging up English hillsides. Usually, she's tucked in the corner of a coffee shop, dreaming up stories. 

ABOUT THE BOOK: Tunnel of Bones

Trouble is haunting Cassidy Blake . . . even more than usual. She (plus her ghost best friend, Jacob, of course) are in Paris, where Cass's parents are filming their TV show about the world's most haunted cities. Sure, it's fun eating croissants and seeing the Eiffel Tower, but there's true ghostly danger lurking beneath Paris, in the creepy underground Catacombs. When Cass accidentally awakens a frighteningly strong spirit, she must rely on her still-growing skills as a ghosthunter -- and turn to friends both old and new to help her unravel a mystery. But time is running out, and the spirit is only growing stronger. And if Cass fails, the force she's unleashed could haunt the city forever. 

40-50 minutes, plus Q&A

Victoria’s presentation focus will be on her writing and research process for her City of Ghosts series. To research TUNNEL OF BONES, Victoria traveled to Paris where she toured the Catacombs, the Eiffel Tower, and Notre Dame. She has behind-the-scenes photos of these landmarks that she’ll show and will speak to the importance of setting in her stories and how a sense of place is a character in and of itself in her books.

Elementary school,  middle school. Grades 4-7


Projector, projector screen, HDMI adaptor cord for Mac laptop (author will bring Mac laptop), microphone. And a water bottle.


Tattered Cover will design an order form that the school should distribute in advance of the author visit, and again on the day of the event to all student attendees. 

Link to share with students and their families to order Victoria's books: Please make sure anyone ordering online includes the name of your school in the Notes section of the order and if they'd like to pick up the book from you at the school. Please DO NOT give a book to someone who says they ordered online unless they have the printed confirmation. PLEASE KEEP THIS! You'll need to include these confirmations when returning the leftover books so you won't be charged for them! If they do ask you for a book without a confirmation, just email us the name of the student and parent's name and we can check. DEADLINE: Online orders with SCHOOL PICK UP will only be available for one week after the school visit. Orders placed after that time will need to be picked up at one of our locations, or shipped.
