Join us as we read aloud the entire novel Dracula by Bram Stoker from dusk till dawn. Late Friday afternoon, we’ll begin with Jonathan Harker’s journal account of his visit to Dracula’s Castle and we’ll end on Saturday morning with the pursuit of Dracula back to his lair.  The Rosenbach is the home of first editions of Bram Stoker’s novel, as well as his Notes for Dracula, over 100 pages of outlines, early plot ideas, and research notes, compiled by the author over the seven years he developed and wrote the book.  This year, Stoker’s masterpiece turned 125 years old and what more fitting way to celebrate the King of the Vampires than an all-night reading.  Do you dare stay up all night with us to hear this blood-curdling tale read aloud?    

This Rosenbach program will take place at the Trinity Center for Urban Life, 2212 Spruce St, Philadelphia, PA 19103 (22nd and Spruce Streets, just 2 blocks from the Rosenbach)
