Reading the Entirety of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein

Date & Time:

Wednesday, October 31, 2018
9:00 AM - 6:00 PM


Luann Dummer Center for Women (OEC 103)

Participate in a marathon reading of the 1818 edition of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and be a part of history as you join with other readers at over 450 institutions across the globe! Readers may come and go as they please, staying for a half-hour or making a day of it. Participants will sit in a circle and take turns reading; listeners are welcome too. Readers don’t need to bring anything, as several copies of Frankenstein will be available to pick up and leave during the event.

Light refreshments will be served throughout the day.

The Luann Dummer Center for Women and the English Department will host a series of events to both commemorate the bicentennial of Frankenstein's "birth" and recognize its boundless influences. For a full list of events, please visit:
