"I Bid You Welcomeâ€: Entering Castle Dracula in Different Adaptations of Stoker's Novel
Join us for a special evening of gothic performance to celebrate the opening of the Archives & Special Collections Fall exhibition, Crossing Thresholds.
Leslie S. Klinger, a leading authority on Dracula, joins forces with LMU’s Theatre Arts Department and the William H. Hannon Library for an unforgettable evening in honor of Bram Stoker’s legendary vampire.
Klinger, author and editor of The Annotated Dracula, among other works, will speak on Stoker's novel and its many afterlives while theatre arts students present scenes from five different stage adaptations from 1924 to 2000.
Event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served, and books will be available for sale and signing. An RSVP is required, as this event will fill up!
This event is a part of the semester-long series Spaces Between, a joint initiative of the Laband Art Gallery and the William H. Hannon Library at LMU, and the Ben Maltz Gallery at Otis College of Art & Design.
