Santa Monica Public Library presents The Mythology of the Werewolf with Mari Hamill on Thursday, October 29 at 7 p.m. in the Main Library’s MLK, Jr. Auditorium, 601 Santa Monica Blvd.

Author Mari Hamill discusses the mythology of the werewolf, as well as its history in popular culture. Her novel “Werewolf Nights” is a kitschy twist on the horror thriller genre. In the book, actress Catherine Mercy falls for her leading man, Greg Byron. When he is bitten by a wolf and his features turn lupine, Catherine must determine if her family legend is true and act to save Greg and their budding relationship. Werewolf Nights blends fantasy, intrigue, and passion to create a chilling and unique story. A book sale and signing follows the program.

Mari Hamill has English and literature degrees from Harvard, the Sorbonne Nouvelle and the University of Michigan. Mari’s love of fantasy began in her family’s comic book store, Metro Comics, in Puerto Rico. She is multilingual and has traveled the world, residing in Guaynabo, Cambridge, Boston, Ann Arbor, Middlebury, Montreal, Lausanne, Paris, Venice, Vallejo and Chapel Hill. She currently lives in Venice, California and dedicates her free time to community service.
