On Thursday, October 28th and Friday, October 29th, The Charleston Library Society will welcome Dacre Stoker, international bestselling author and descendant of Bram Stoker, author of Dracula, who has spent the last 12 years researching his famous great grand-uncle and uncovering the facts behind the myths.
Joining Stoker will be Andrea St. Amand, an evidential psychic medium, internationally recognized expert in the paranormal, and scholar of Dracula and the Occult. Stoker and St. Amand have traveled from England to the Carpathian Mountains of Transylvania, on the hunt of the fictional and real-life Dracula. Joining them at the CLS event will be actor Braxton Williams.
The event is an audio/visual presentation with dramatic readings by Williams, playing Bram Stoker. The trio will present facts behind the myths and legends of the novel, reveal unpublished portions of the story, and foray into the brilliant mind and influences that created this enduring literary horror.
As a special feature, rarely-seen, ghoulish items in the collection of the Charleston Library Society will be on display, such as Henry Timrod’s “Blood Book” and the haunting works by Italian artist Piranesi, rumored to have inspired the likes of Mary Shelley and Lord Byron.
This event will be performed on consecutive evenings at 7 pm. Tickets are $25 for members and $35 for nonmembers, and can be purchased by calling 843-723-9912 or via the links below.
