Library benefit features Laurell Hamilton, Charlaine Harris in St Louis Sept 13th

Laurell K. Hamilton and Charlaine Harris will talk about their famous vampire books at a September event to benefit the St. Louis Public Library.

Tickets are $28 and include an autographed copy of either Hamilton's "Hit List" (featuring vampire hunter Anita Blake) or Harris' "The Sookie Stackhouse Companion." You pick which book you want when you buy a ticket.

The megawatt authors will answer questions about their books Sept. 13 at Christ Church Cathedral, 1210 Locust Street. It's across the street from the beautiful library, which is closed for a multimillion-dollar renovation.

Harris, whose Sookie is the star of HBO's sexy, scary "True Blood," will be in town for Bouchercon, the crime convention. Hamilton, whose Anita Blake series was a forerunner of the fantasy/horror/erotica mixed-genre trend, lives in St. Louis County.

Subterranean is selling books for the event (there will be no signing at the event, however). For more details, go to its website. Buy tickets at Brown Paper Tickets.
