Who says books are boring?
The Charleston Library Society will bring an eclectic variety of speakers to Charleston. Authors will talk about local history, poets, and vampires

He vants to suck your blood
A direct descendent of Bram Stoker, Dacre Stoker will present Dracula: The Undead, a sequel to his great-grand uncle's story. Maybe a movie version will revitalize Winona Ryder's career.

All this, and Andy Rooney
60 Minutes producer Robert G. Anderson Jr. was there when Mike Wallace asked Dr. Jack Kevorkian the tough questions. Attending Anderson's lecture June 5 certainly won't have you considering doctor-assisted suicide.
