TEDxNASA - Maggie Stiefvater - How Bad Teens Become Famous People

Is this American author of young adult and urban fantasy novels the next JK Rowling? Maggie Stiefvater calls herself a 28-year-old with a serious Peter Pan complex. Her debut novel, Lament, is a skillful blend of magic and ordinary life. Her second book, Shiver, was featured on the New York Times top ten list. She's been a waitress, a calligraphy instructor, a technical editor, an artist and a musician. She's now an award-winning professional novelist. Her duo subjects -- faeries and werewolves -- are geared to different age levels. For her, faeries pull up lost connections with nature, lost innocence and magic. Werewolves, on the other hand, are metaphors for the loss of personal identity, a phenomenon, she says, of our increasingly homogenized world. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
