Frankenstein’s Legacy: Who Are You Calling Monster?
Sunday 8 April
In 1818, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein created a monster. Now, to celebrate the novel’s 200-year anniversary, three writers from Scottish Book Trust’s New Writers Awards programme have been commissioned to create new stories and poems inspired by this landmark work. Join us for a discussion of Frankenstein and to hear Anna Stewart, Robert McGinty and Molly Vogel read from their own takes on The Modern Prometheus as we look at the role of science and technology in creating and controlling human life, consider the wonder, diversity and potential of life and – in the case of Victor Frankenstein – the potential consequences when the act of creation goes awry!
