Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

Royalton Memorial Library Book Club
Royalton Memorial Library continues our Epistolary Book Club our series with timeless classic Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley. Come read the pivotal title that influenced the entire world of science fiction, and created one of the most ubiquitous misnomers in history. Because, while many of us are familiar with the story, I’m sure there are some that still ask the question: Who is Frankenstein anyways?

Royalton Memorial Library will also be holding a movie night where we watch the 1931 titular classic Frankenstein, directed by James Whale. Witness the great Boris Karloff as the re-animated monster in one of the iterations of the age old story!

The group will be meeting at the library on October 27th, 6:00 PM at the library. Zoom links will be available upon request.
