The Birth of Frankenstein - 200th Anniversary Reading


The iconic tale of Frankenstein came to life over 200 years ago. It all started in the year 1816 on a stormy night in Switzerland. The wind howled against the buildings and lightening lit the rain slashed earth. It was the perfect night to drum up some delicious fear. Mary Shelley was enticed by her friend Lord Byron to write some ghost stories. This was an initial ploy to while away the hours with a group of friends. What came forth, was her compelling Gothic tale Frankenstein which became a masterpiece of written work and also the influence for several movies.
