Episode #38 Dracula Better Left Untold

Dracula Untold ” is a big blockbuster of a film.  Robert Horton finds it too big to be actually scary. That gets Steve and Robert talking about the way these stories are part of the warp and weft of the modern times.

Robert is talking about these ideas October 25th, 7 pm  at Elliot Bay Book Company. Join him there.

Steve has the honor of talking with John Cleese November 16th  sponsored by the University Bookstore.

Where are you home?  Check out the  Facebook page for past responses or at twitter @whereareyouhome .  Post your answer, weave a tale,   share a picture, sing a song, write a poem, make a movie, record the sounds. All focused on when you felt that shift from a place to a home.
