Book Discussion | Carmilla by Amy Chu, and Soo Lee


Join Karen Berger, Amy Chu, and Soo Lee as they discuss their Bram Stoker Award nominated graphic novel series Carmilla. At the height of the Lunar New Year, an idealistic social worker turns detective when she discovers young, homeless LGBTQ+ women are being murdered and no one, especially the police, seems to care. A series of clues points her to Carmilla's, a mysterious nightclub in the heart of her neighborhood, Chinatown. There she falls for the next likely target, landing her at the center of a real-life horror story--and face-to-face with illusions about herself, her life, and her hidden past. Inspired by the gothic novel that started a genre, this queer vampire murder mystery is a tale of identity, obsession and fateful family secrets by fan-favorite writer Amy Chu (Red Sonja, Netflix's DOTA: Dragon's Blood) and fine-line illustrator Soo Lee (Ash & Thorn).  At this event, Carmilla creators Amy Chu and Soo Lee will discuss the series with its editor Karen Berger.

Book Discussion | Hitler's Panzer Generals: Guderian, Hoepner, Reinhardt and Schmidt Unguarded (online)


Germany's success in the Second World War was built upon its tank forces; however, many of its leading generals, with the notable exception of Heinz Guderian, are largely unknown. This biographical study of four German panzer army commanders serving on the Eastern Front is based upon their unpublished wartime letters to their wives. David Stahel offers a complete picture of the men conducting Hitler's war in the East, with an emphasis on the private fears and public pressures they operated under. He also illuminates their response to the criminal dimension of the war as well as their role as leading military commanders conducting large-scale operations. While the focus is on four of Germany's most important panzer generals - Guderian, Hoepner, Reinhardt and Schmidt - the evidence from their private correspondence sheds new light on the broader institutional norms and cultural ethos of the Wehrmacht's Panzertruppe. With author David Stahel.
