One State/One Story – Frankenstein – Ripley County Community Reads

October 16, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Join Nancy Durham as she leads the discussion as we explore Frankenstein. Copies of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein will be made available at each library on August 1st while supplies last.

Why Frankenstein?
The classic novel, which turns 200 in 2018, is the heart of One State / One Story, an ambitious statewide read offered in partnership with the Indiana State Library.
There are few works of classic literature that speak so directly to our contemporary world as Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. Begun in 1816 and published in 1818, the book raises big questions about science and its role in society. Join us as we use the text to answer questions about how we decipher what’s right and wrong, how we understand ourselves in relation to the world around us, and how we live in the world—questions that are as important today as they were in Mary Shelly’s time.
