Frankenfest: Special Hollywood Edition

Event Date: 
Wed, 10/30/2013 - 10:00am - 7:00pm
Ruth Ann Musick Library - Tab Lab, Middle Floor
No fee

On Wednesday, October 30, Fairmont State University’s College of Language and Literature will hold a multi-media celebration of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein in the Tab Lab on the middle floor of the campus library. Each hour from 10-6, participants will take turns reading a section of the novel aloud. Then the group will watch corresponding scenes from some of the movies it has inspired.

Many members of the Fairmont State and Pierpont communities will have read Frankenstein as part of the 2012-2013 Common Reader Project. This classic tale of the scientist who succeeds in his ambition to create life, but then fails to nurture and educate his creature, thus creating a monster, has universal appeal, especially at a time of growing concern about the unintended consequences that can accompany scientific and technological progress.

The event is free and open to anyone who wants to drop by.
