Chandler Klang Smith

Chandler read from her debut novel, The Sky Is Yours. Her #literarycocktail was inspired by the two dragons that constantly circle the sky in her fantasy novel, scorching the earth at whim. It contained yellow chartreuse, vermouth, vodka, lemon and lime and was a crowd favorite.
