Mary Shelley  - A Living History

Featuring Frankenstein Author Mary Shelley

On Saturday, February 3, 2018, at 6PM PCCM engaged the public to learn more about Mary Shelley, author of the novel Frankenstein, and celebrate the 200 Anniversary of its publication. The show was followed by a Q&A with Mary Shelley and the author/presenter. Over 200 attendees learned how a young lady of eighteen came to think and created the first science fiction novel in history in 1818. But when does society have the right to step in? They were able to discuss with her about the ethics and responsibility of science and technology, among the many other questions they had for her.
