Dubois Library hosts Frankenstein expert

DUBOIS — Adrienne Provenzano will speak at the Dubois Branch Library on Thursday, Oct. 4, beginning at 7 p.m. The presentation, “A Visit with Mary Shelley,” will give insights into Shelley’s life and how she came to write “Frankenstein,” which turns 200 in 2018.

The library’s book club is reading Frankenstein throughout the month of September and will discuss it on Monday, Oct. 1. The discussion will begin at 6:30 p.m. Anyone is welcome to join in on this discussion. The library has several more copies of the book to loan out for readers.

Dubois Branch Library is one of 19 organizations across the state selected by Indiana Humanities to host a talk from its “Frankenstein” speakers bureau.

Written by teenager Mary Shelley in 1818, “Frankenstein” tells the story of a young scientist who created a grotesque living creature through a scientific experiment and was horrified by what he had made.

One State/One Story: Frankenstein is an initiative designed by Indiana Humanities, in partnership with the Indiana State Library and Indiana Center for the Book. Learn more at www.IndianaHumanities.org/Frankenstein<http://www.IndianaHumanities.org/Frankenstein>.
