What once began as a meditation on mortality after the loss of her husband has led NPR reporter Margot Adler (All Things Considered) into a deep dissection of our cultural fascination with vampires. Reading more than 270 vampire-centric novels as part of her research, Adler found herself exploring issues of power, politics, morality and identity -- coming to a number of fascinating conclusions about our obsession with these undead creatures along the way. Her resulting book, Vampires Are Us: Understanding Our Love Affair with the Immortal Dark Side, is a literate, thought-provoking and imaginative piece of work. Following the evening's conversation, Adler will be available to sign copies of her book, which will be available for purchase at the event. Learn More

I was at first a little put off by the fact that the event was high up (I took the stairs, not thinking to look for an elevator!) and in a small room with a capacity of 60 (about 50 in attendance), the projector in the middle of the room and a 6' X 10' screen (approximately). I was expecting a more formal venue like a movie theater - if small. None of that mattered once the movie started. It was great and I recommend it to everyone. The film referenced a lot of different phenomena and people which I jotted down to look up/google later. Shaydac definitely had a life-altering experience and in sharing his journey helps to get those of us watching to be open to change in our own lives. I'm grateful to the NY Society for Ethical Culture and Goldstar for making the film available this way, but it should receive a wider audience. It is available on DVD and maybe through Netflix or a similar provider. Once you see it you'll want to share it, so I recommend buying a copy!
