Book Discussion: Frankenstein by Mary Shelley


By Wallingford Pub... - Posted on 24 January 2010

Wednesday, February 10th at 3:30 p.m. in the Collins Room

In 1816 Mary Shelley decided to create a story that in her own words, “would speak to the mysterious fear of our nature and awaken thrilling horror – one to make the reader dread to look round, to curdle the blood, and quicken the beatings of the heart.” Judging from the multiple film adaptations, books in print, and permanent place in popular culture, she succeeded!

The discussion will be led by Marsha Bansavage, discussion facilitator for the Connecticut Humanities Council.

All are welcome and copies of the book are available from the library’s Information Desk. This discussion of the novel Frankenstein concludes our four-part discussion series on the “Range of Realism.”co-sponsored by the Connecticut Humanities Council and made possible by the Faustman Fund.
