Dacre Stoker, great-grand nephew of legendary Irish author Bram Stoker, presented a compelling and informative program detailing the many mysteries and speculations surrounding Bram Stoker’s writing of Dracula. During his presentation, he tied in the background and research behind the writing of the more recent novel Dracula the Un-Dead (the Stoker family-endorsed sequel) which he co-authored in 2009. In addition, he recently completed the nonfiction work Bram Stoker’s Lost Journal (2012), which sheds a new and interesting look into Bram Stoker’s early life in Dublin, Ireland.
Never-before published and seldom seen Stoker family images, as well as Dacre’s down-to-earth style of presentation has captivated audiences over the past two years. This presentation was appealing to all ages and interests, from High School and College students to serious literary and Vampire fans. Dacre reveals true “insider” stories about his family as he explains his search for the truth about Bram Stoker and clarifies the issues that have caused confusion and speculation amongst scholars and fans for years.
The cost was FREE for museum members and Lackawanna County Library System library card holders and $10/non-members.
