Author discusses ‘Dracula’ Thursday

Before Edward Cullen and “True Blood,” there was Dracula,
the terrifying blood-sucker from Transylvania. A young Jane Congdon was
fascinated by his tale and developed a desire to tour the land of the
famous vampire. What followed was a memoir about her 18-day journey and
coming to terms with a broken childhood.

The author discusses “It Started with Dracula”  at 7 p.m. Thursday at EVERYbody Reads Books and Stuff, 2019 E, Michigan Ave,. in Lansing. 

Along with discussing her memoir, Congdon will also be
signing copies of the book. For more information on the author, visit
