Beyond Twilight: Vampire Fiction
TIME: 2:00 pm
to 4:00 pm
How did we get from Lord Byron and Bram Stoker to the billion dollar media empire of Twilight, and where does the modern vampire go from here? In this lively slide show and talk, author Inanna Arthen will trace the history of vampires and debunk some common mistakes about the genre. Did Stoker base Dracula on a 15th century warlord? Do vampires burn in sunlight? Can vampires eat? If you think you know the answers, you're in for some surprises!
Inanna Arthen has been studying vampire folklore, media and culture for 45 years, and runs Light Unseen Media. She is the author of the Vampires in New England Series of novels.
