October means it’s time for Dracula

The Rosenbach Museum and Library, one of the finest special collection libraries in the world, holds Bram Stoker’s original notes and outlines for his most famous novel, Dracula. Located at 2008-2010 Delancey Street, in a beautiful building (formerly home to the Rosenbachs) just off Rittenhouse Square, the Rosenbach’s Dracula Festival begins October 1. One of the more interesting events will be a talk by Dr. Nina Auerbach, author of Our Vampires, Ourselves, on Thursday, October 16, at 6pm. The Rosenbach does charge an admission fee: $10 for adults, $5 for students.
