MA – The Fall Signing
GUILLERMO DEL TORO and CHUCK HOGAN discuss The Fall: Book Two of the Strain Trilogy on Sept 23rd.
Harvard Book Store is excited to welcome acclaimed director GUILLERMO DEL TORO and award-winning thriller writer CHUCK HOGAN as they discuss The Fall, the second installment in their Strain Trilogy. The pair will be interviewed by the Brattle Theatreâ€²s own creative director, Ned Hinkle.
The vampiric virus unleashed in The Strain has taken over New York City. It is spreading across the country and soon, the world. Amid the chaos, Eph Goodweather, head of the CDCâ€²s team and one of a small group who have banded together to fight the bloodthirsty monsters that roam the streets, finally manages to identify the parasite that causes the infection. But it may be too late.
Ignited by the Masterâ€²s horrific plan, a war erupts between Old and New World Vampires, each side vying for control of the planet. As the virus continues to plague the land, humans find themselves caught in the middle of the conflict.
At the same time, the battle finds its way inside Ephâ€²s own home: his ex-wife, Kelly, who was turned by the Master, has her sights fixed on Zack, Ephâ€²s son.
With the future of the world in the balance, Eph and his team of fighters must use all their skills and Holocaust survivor and former professor Abraham Setrakianâ€²s intimate knowledge of the enemy to combat a terror whose ultimate plan is more terrible than the humans at first imagined—a fate worse than annihilation.
