Local author and educator, Amy Williams Wilson, will read from her book, The Bite, The Breast, and the Blood: Why Modern Vampire Stories Suck Us In.

Central to every vampire story is the undead’s need for human blood, but equally compelling is the human ingestion of vampire blood, which often creates a bond. Wilson’s analysis of vampire stories explores the benefits of the bonding experiences of breastfeeding and Christian and vampire narratives, arguing that modern readers and viewers are drawn to this genre because of our innate fascination with the relationship between human and maker.
