 The zombie infection has become widespread: movies, television, videogames, books, even the nightly news. The undead have shambled a long path from their beginnings in West African sorcery to become potent symbols of social upheaval and societal collapse, as well as certified box office gold. Behind the myths and celluloid, even stranger creatures lurk, in the various documented cases of people seeming to have been truly zombified. Join author and occasional monster-hunter William Akin as he takes a deeper look at the idea of the zombie and how it has come to be such a prominent part of our modern cultural landscape. All attendees must be in possession of at least one brain; no biters, please.
