The upcoming SXSW festival is getting a vampire twist in celebration of the new FX TV show What We Do in the Shadows. Based on the awesomeness that is the free mini library box program around the country. FX has created “vampire themed” structures filled with vampire books to reflect on the original series. From March 9-12th in Austin (from Dusk until Midnight, prime vampire hours), fans can visit the vampire libraries to select a free book of their choosing. They also will give out specialized bookmarks and a chance to enter a sweepstakes for cash prizes.
The locations will be at:
o El Naranjo, 85 Rainey Street
o Bat Bar, 218 E 6th Street
o Iron Works BBQ, 100 Red River Street
