There is a new annotated edition of Bram Stoker’s Dracula being released in October. The editor and annotator is Les Klinger who also wrote The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes. Some details of the book are found here. For people in the Minneapolis/St. Paul, Toronto and Chicago areas, there will be presentations by the author and books available for signing and purchase. This seems like the sort of book that would interest a number of Dopers and I thought I would let people know. I became aware of it due to Sherlock Holmes related relationships I have with these libraries and through knowing Les.
The Minneapolis event is at Andersen Library on the U of M campus, West Bank on Monday. Oct. 27, 7:00 pm.
The Toronto event is at the Toronto Public Library on Thursday October 23 at 7:00 pm. It will be at the Lillian H Smith Library on College Street branch instead of at the Reference Library.
He is also showing up at the Newberry Library in Chicago on Tuesday October 28 at 6:00. It is a beautiful library that I’ve visited a few times.
In doing some research for this post, I found a site that gives his tour itinerary. He is appearing a quite a few more locations than I had realized.
Les Klinger actually posted a few messages on SDMB a number of years ago in response to a Sherlock Holmes report written by Dex. Anyway, I hope this information is helpful to anyone interested in the subject.
