Now Reading: Dracula

LY3676-LJ-AinA-Dracula

We just finished discussing Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton. Thank you to all who participated! Now it’s time to start reading the next book club pick for September/October, Bram Stoker’s Dracula!

The vampire novel that started it all, Bram Stoker’s Dracula probes deeply into human identity, sanity, and the dark corners of Victorian sexuality and desire. When Jonathan Harker visits Transylvania to help Count Dracula purchase a London house, he makes horrifying discoveries about his client. Soon afterward, disturbing incidents unfold in England-an unmanned ship is wrecked at Whitby, strange puncture marks appear on a young woman’s neck, and a lunatic asylum inmate raves about the imminent arrival of his “Master” – culminating in a battle of wits between the sinister Count and a determined group of adversarie.

Check out Dracula in your preferred format from your local library and start reading! Follow us here on the blog, Facebook and Twitter for interesting posts about the book and author. In October, we’ll post questions on Facebook about the book for you to discuss—just in time for Halloween!
