Appearance: Bleeding Hearts Club 2/14/09

Linebaugh Library will host the Bleeding Hearts Club at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 14. Whether you’re a fan of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series, Charlaine Harris’s Sookie Stackhouse series, Laurell Hamilton’s Anita Blake series, or the classic Dracula, join us to talk about all things vampire. Stoker-nominated Alethea Kontis will lead the discussion about our favorite vampires, vampires in fiction and on the screen, and the mystery and history of vampire lore. Kontis, a Murfreesboro resident, has written a variety of fiction and nonfiction, including the short story "Blood and Water" — a re-telling of "The Little Mermaid" involving a vampire and pirates. Kontis has been long-listed for the 2009 Bram Stoker Award for Superior Achievement in Nonfiction for her book Beauty and Dynamite. This free program will be held in the Linebaugh Public Library Reading Room. For ages 13 and up.
