A Discovery of Witches Screening and Q&A
October 5, 6:30pm–7:30pm, Room 1A06, Javits Center
Join author Deborah Harkness for an exclusive screening of the exciting new drama, A Discovery of Witches, followed by a Q&A where she dives into her mysterious and thrilling world of vampires, witches and daemons. Based on Harkness’ bestselling and critically-acclaimed novel of the same name, A Discovery of Witches – a Sundance Now and Shudder original series – is a captivating modern-day love story set against the backdrop of Oxford academic life. Historian Diana Bishop (played by Teresa Palmer), a reluctant witch denying her heritage, accidentally discovers a long-lost bewitched manuscript and is immediately thrown into the heart of a dangerous underworld…and into the path of enigmatic vampire and geneticist, Matthew Clairmont (played by Matthew Goode). The 8-episode series, which will premiere on Shudder in early 2019, is produced by Bad Wolf – the creative team behind “The Night Of” and “Doctor Who.”
