Every Sunday for 27 weeks, we’ll be having a live virtual conversation about Bram Stoker’s novel Dracula and highlight one chapter per week. The novel begins on May 3 and ends 27 weeks later on November 6. Join us for one program or all 27! Joining Edward G. Pettit of The Rosenbach will be a revolving set of co-hosts, all of whom have had a long history of reading, collecting, and creating with Stoker’s vampire. The Rosenbach is the home of Bram Stoker’s 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. Content of these Notes will be featured in the conversations.

We will finish the novel with Chapter 27 on November 8, which is also Bram Stoker’s birthday. Joining us for this Nov 8 show will be renowned Dracula scholar, Sir Christopher Frayling.

The November 15 show will be an after-party featuring all of the cohosts on one show talking about Dracula and this biblioventure over the last six months.

Register in advance to join this virtual program on Zoom and participate during the program. Join the Sundays with Dracula Facebook group for further discussion between the episodes.

  • November 8: Joining us for Bram Stoker’s birthday and the final chapter of the novel is Sir Christopher Frayling.  Award-winning broadcaster, writer, educationalist and cultural historian Sir Christopher Frayling is best known for his study of popular culture. His most recent publications are The Yellow Peril: Dr Fu Manchu & the Rise of Chinophobia (2014), Frankenstein: The First 200 Years (2017) and Once Upon a Time in the West: Shooting a Masterpiece (2019). His Nightmare: Birth of Horror television series featured the origin stories of Frankenstein, Dracula, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, and Hound of the Baskervilles.  For the Dracula episode, he visited The Rosenbach to study Bram Stoker’s Notes firsthand. Christopher Frayling has spent 45 years exploring the history of one of the most enduring figures in the history of mass culture – the vampire. His Vampyres: Lord Byron to Count Dracula was a landmark cultural study of vampires when first published in 1978 and an updated edition was published in 2016 as Vampyres: Genesis and Resurrection from Count Dracula to Vampirella.
