Some Favorite Writers: Dracula!
Perfusing music, theater, cinema, and visual arts, Dracula is perhaps best known for inspiring some of the most chilling and erotic imagery in literature. Experts and enthusiasts Jonathan Grossman, Leslie Klinger, Elizabeth Miller, and David Skal join Mona Simpson to present selected vampire writings and speculate on society’s eternal fan(g)dom for this shape-shifting, undead archvillain. Costumes welcome.
Some Favorite Writers is supported, in part, by the UCLA Department of English and Friends of English.
This series of readings is organized by Mona Simpson, author of My Hollywood, Anywhere But Here, and Off Keck Road. Readings are followed by discussions with Simpson.
All Hammer public programs are free and made possible by a major gift from the Dream Fund at UCLA.
Generous support is also provided by Susan Bay Nimoy and Leonard Nimoy, the Simms/Mann Family Foundation, The Brotman Foundation of California, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, and all Hammer members.
