First Thursday Book Discussion
Columbia Public Library, Virginia G. Young Room

Bring a brown bag lunch and join us to discuss “Frankenstein” by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley. This classic novel, written when Shelley was only 19 years old, tells the chilling tale of a young scientist's desire to create life. Victor Frankenstein's monster is stitched together from the stolen limbs of the dead and the result is a grotesque being who, rejected by his maker, sets out on a journey to seek his revenge. In the most famous gothic horror story ever told, Shelley confronts the limitations of science, the nature of human cruelty and the pathway to forgiveness with rich language and evocative imagery.
