Dacre Stoker is the great grand-nephew of Bram Stoker and the best-selling co-author of Dracula the Un-Dead, the official Stoker family endorsed sequel to Dracula.

Dacre has become well known and a respected figure in the world of vampires and has consulted and appeared in film documentaries about vampires in literature and popular culture. He is the co-editor of The Lost Journal of Bram Stoker: The Dublin Years and the film rights to his next novel, a prequel to Dracula, has been purchased by Paramount Studios.

In his lecture, Dacre Stoker will discuss Dracula’s history with the Stoker family, and Bram Stoker’s life in Dublin and London. He will separate fact from popular fiction and reveal the truth about all things Stoker and Dracula, exploring the issues behind the mysteries that have baffled Dracula scholars and fans since the book’s publication in 1897.
