Dinner with a vampire author?

Wednesday, May 18, 2011

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author and the writer behind HBO's True Blood series, Charlaine Harris, will make an exclusive appearance and book signing October 1 in Eureka Springs and Bentonville to help raise funds for the Writers' Colony at Dairy Hollow.

Harris is best known for her Sookie Stackhouse urban vampire fantasy series, and HBO's super hit True Blood based on the Sookie series.

There are more than 20 million copies of her 10-book series in print. She is currently on tour for her new book, Dead Reckoning.

Last year Charlaine entered the world of iPlay Games with Dying for Daylight, where she invites players to be Dahlia - "the vampire with a devastating sense of fashion and a razor-sharp wit, on an epic hunt to find a legendary sun potion."

The charming, funny and very Southern Miss Harris will appear at The Crescent Hotel Conservatory on Saturday, Oct. 1 from 1 -- 3 p.m. Tickets are $50 and include a buffet and cash bar.

On Saturday night, Miss Harris and the Writers' Colony will host a fabulous dinner at The Peel Mansion in Bentonville, from 6:30 -- 10:30 p.m.

Tickets include a full-course dinner and all cocktails and beverages. Tickets are $125 single ticket, $200 per couple, or $750 for a table of eight. Special dinner seating with Miss Harris at her table is available for $250 per person or $450 per couple.

Tickets may be reserved for either event by calling the Writers' Colony at Dairy Hollow (479) 253-7444. Tickets are limited for each event. More information is available by phone, or email director@writerscolony.org.
