Bram Stoker and vampire literature
We’ll be featuring a first edition of Twilight from our Mormon Literary Authors collection and a signed first edition of Dracula from our Victorian Collection. If you really love vampire lit, come to Special Collections and peruse some of the Gothic tales that influenced Bram Stoker, like Wilkie Collins’ The Woman in White and Charles Maturin’s Melmoth the Wanderer. We also have more of Stoker’s fiction, like his first novel, The Snake’s Pass (1890) or the horror tale The Lair of the White Worm (1911). We promise we won’t ask for a donation of blood before you enter the reading room.
