Frankenstein 200th Anniversary Book Talk

Monday | October 15 | 7:00PM - 8:00PM

This year marks the 200th anniversary of the publication of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein: The Modern Prometheus. The central question in the book - Just because it can be done, should it be done? - is just as relevant now as it was in the early 19th century. In partnership with the Class Acts Series and the US Bank Family Series at the Carson Center in downtown Paducah, the McCracken County Public Library will host a free book discussion of this enduring classic on Monday, October 15, 2018 at 7 PM in the library's Meeting Room. The discussion is open to everyone, from students through adults. Information about the Carson Center's productions of Frankenstein will also be available at the discussion, as well as a chance to win some free tickets to the US Bank Family Series performance on October 21, 2018 at 6pm! The discussion will be facilitated by youth services assistant, Matt Jaeger.

Copies of the book, both physical and digital, are available to check out from the McCracken County Public Library. For more, visit the library catalog.
