Cornwell to speak at first Stoker festival
A NEW festival to promote the legacy of 'Dracula' author Bram Stoker is to run over the October bank holiday weekend.
The inaugural 'My Name is Dracula: Bram Stoker Festival' begins with US author Patricia Cornwell talking about the ways in which the serial killer has become a modern-day equivalent of the vampire.
Speaking in the Edmund Burke Theatre in Trinity College Dublin, Stoker's alma mater, she will compare Stoker's characters, plots and stories to those of her own books.
Her talk, 'The Anatomy of Fear', will be introduced by State Pathologist Marie Cassidy.
