Dracula Chosen as Dublin Book for 2009!

DraculaDublin City Council has chosen Bram Stoker’s novel Dracula as its featured 2009 title for its One City, One Book initiative. Stoker was born in 1847 at 15 Marino Crescent on Dublin’s northside. Now entering its fourth year, "Dublin: One City, One Book" is a project designed to encourage everyone in the city to read the same book during the month of April each year. The project promotes reading in a city which boasts one of the world’s greatest literary heritages including four Nobel Laureates. Dracula was written in 1897, and has been translated into many languages. It has been the inspiration for many other works, and has been widely adapted for the stage and film.
