MERCY, the last New England vampire, was pulled forcibly from her tomb in 1892.  The teen novel about this horrific true incident and the present-day girl who uncovers it, will be launched at the Eastern Cemetery in Portland, Maine on Saturday, October 1st at 2:00 PM.

The author, Sarah L. Thomson will be reading and signing her novel while the ghost of Mercy walks the graveyard.  Readers will have a chance to catch Mercy on film, to try out a choice of supernatural makeup (vampires, zombies, or ghosts), and to tour the graveyard with its caretakers, Spirits Alive.  Spirits Alive will tell stories of other teen girls taken tragically at the turn of the century.  Each reader will walk away with a memento of Mercy.

Mercy: The Last New England Vampire is published by Islandport Press and the event is sponsored by the Islandport Press, Portland Public Library, and Curious City.
