Vampires, Werewolves, and Ghosts, Oh My!

This season, spend some time learning about the genre of horror literature and hearing tempting tidbits from books featuring the troika of fear – vampires, werewolves and ghosts - including Bram Stoker’s Dracula and Charlaine Harris’ Sookie Stackhouse novels.

Wednesday, October 7th at 7:00pm
Presented by Library Director, Christine McIntosh.
