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
