Author Mary Shelley was only 19 years old when she wrote this classic 200 years ago! Regarded as Gothic sensationalism when first published, Frankenstein has resonated widely in the popular imagination since. This multi-media presentation considers how Shelley addressed some of mankind's greatest concerns with a creation that took on a life of its own.
