After only Bram Stoker, the premier author of all things vampire is Anne Rice
. Her Vampire Chronicles series, and most famously her 1976 debut novel Interview with a Vampire
, have followed the various exploits of bloodsucking antihero Lestat, who returns in Rice's new novel, Prince Lestat
. Hailed as a return to form for Rice, the new novel finds the vampire world in chaos and Lestat at the center of the action. Anne is not the only writer in the family, and her son, New York Times bestselling author Christopher Rice
, joins her in conversation this week in Santa Rosa. Copperfield's Books presents an evening with the two authors on Tuesday, Nov. 11, at the Santa Rosa High School Auditorium, 1235 Mendocino Ave., Santa Rosa. 5:30pm. $38 (includes a copy of Prince Lestat). 707.823.8991.
