Dracula is one of two literary sources that inspired The Lord of Cries, the world premier slated for Santa Fe Opera this coming summer.

The book discussion will focus not only on the central characters in the novel but the origins of vampire fiction, its role in the Romantic and Victorian eras, its continuing popularity in literature and films today, foreboding and fear of the ephemeral, and the unpredictable forces that inhabit our psyches and our world.

Facilitator Snider, is a clinical psychologist who also has advanced degrees in English Literature. Her primary focus is the history, culture, prose, and poetry of the Romantic and Victorian eras.
