Seth Grahame-Smith speaks at the Brattle Theatre
Ever wonder why Honest Abe always wore that tall stovepipe hat?
All the better to conceal his wooden vampire-killing stake, my dear. In
his most recent book, Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter, critically
acclaimed author Seth Grahame-Smith recounts the "true story" of our
nation's 16th president. Grahame-Smith, who first made his literary
mark with Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, sheds new light on
the man history has long painted as the benevolent savior of the Union.
In a recent talk at the Brattle Theatre, Grahame-Smith talked about a
Lincoln you might not be as familiar with -- one whose campaign for
equal human rights included the ruthless slaying of the undead.
