The Office of Student Affairs of Fairmont State University and Pierpont Community & Technical College welcomes best-selling author Max Brooks on Tuesday, April 2.
Max Brooks, the son of Mel Brooks and Anne Bancroft, will discuss his experience writing in the horror genre. Brooks is considered by many to be one of the world’s foremost zombie preparedness experts.
The Fairmont State Collegiate Singers and the Fairmont State Chamber Choir will present a concert titled “Frankenstein, Frank N. Furter and Friends” at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 19, in the Wallman Hall Theatre.
Directed by Dr. Sam Spears with John Morrison as accompanist, the concert ties into the celebration of Halloween and the 2012-2013 Fairmont State University Common Reader project.
Although Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein” was first published in 1818 when she was 21, the novel’s content remains relevant to audiences today. For that reason, “Frankenstein” has been chosen as the Common Reader for the 2012-2013 academic year at Fairmont State University. The project will be complemented by a Frankenstein Film Festival and other events throughout the year.
As part of "A Night of Gothic Horror and Family Fun" being presented by the New Mystics Center for Arts and Education, a Fairmont State University faculty member is bringing her "Frankenfest" creation to downtown Fairmont.
