Frankenstein's Real Creator - Mary Shelley

Frankenstein's Real Creator - Mary Shelley

“I shall give an answer to the question so very frequently asked me — How I, then a young girl of eighteen, came to think of, and to dilate upon, so very hideous an idea as Frankenstein?”

Presented by Storysmith ® Susan Marie Frontczak

Teen-age mother, behind-the-scenes supporter of social reform, romantic, and scholar, English writer Mary Shelley (1797-1851) may be best known as the author of Frankenstein, but there is much more to be learned about her, both personally and psychologically. In addition to a compelling personal story which would make many articles in The National Enquirer seem tame, Mary Shelley’s work raises ethical questions about science and social responsibility that are, if anything, more pertinent today than they were in her lifetime.

The dynamic one-hour program consists of a 40-45 minute monologue in-character, followed first by a question and answer period with “Mary Shelley” and then by a question and answer period with the scholar/presenter.


Regular: $20.00

Member & Student: $18.00
