It's alive!

In the spirit of the season, the WMCC lunchtime book discussion group is bringing to life the Gothic classic, Frankenstein, Or The Modern Prometheus by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley.

In the almost 200 years since its original publication in 1818, this well-known story has been reworked and transformed for the theater, film, television, and many a Halloween costume. Written as a cautionary tale about the ethics of science, and also against man's inhumanity to man, the themes in Frankenstein, still apply in the modern world.

Copies are available in the WMCC library, in book and audio formats. Read it and join us on Thursday, November 3, around noon, in Room 122. Bring your lunch!
