Stories about vampires, werewolves, demons, ghosts, witches, and zombies have flourished in art, film, and television during the last decade. From Buffy the Vampire Slayer to The Conjuring and The Walking Dead, Kristen Hutchinson will discuss why she thinks the supernatural is so popular in contemporary visual culture.

There will be a presentation followed by a Q&A with Hutchinson. Refreshments will available be by donation to the LGN.
