Bram Stoker Centenary Conference 2012
Free, all welcome. No booking required: please arrive early to secure a space.
Elizabeth Miller and Dacre Stoker present “Bram Stoker’s Dublin Journal”. The property of Stoker’s great-grandson, Noel Dobbs, the journal comprises over 300 individual handwritten entries. Most were written between 1870 and 1878, while Stoker was still living in Dublin and long before he began writing Dracula. The journal, recently published with annotations and commentary, provides significant insights into Stoker’s life in Dublin, his earliest attempts at writing, and his magnificent Irish sense of humour.
