All Ages

Kelly Link is co-founder of Small Beer Press and author of Stranger Things Happen, Magic for Beginners, Pretty Monsters and the Pulitzer-nominated short story collection Get in Trouble. Her Word Works talk, “A Vampire Is a Flexible Metaphor,” explores the mechanics of introducing the fantastic into a narrative. She’ll discuss the underlying meanings of vampire stories, the enduring, universal fascination with ghost stories, and how and why the unreal is tethered to the real in fantasy writing.
