One State / One Story: Frankenstein

The Greentown Public Library is partnering with Indiana University Kokomo and Kokomo-Howard County Public Library to host a Frankenstein community read. The Villages will also be involved in planning/hosting programs and activities.

A grant of $1000 has been awarded from Indiana Humanities to participate in this yearlong celebration of Mary Shelley’s remarkable novel which turns 200 in 2018.

Programming, including STEM programs, will commemorate Frankenstein and will be held throughout the year.

Frankenstein Book Discussion

Wednesday, Feb. 28  /  6:00-8:00 p.m.

Join our book discussion celebrating the 200th year of Frankenstein by Mary Shelley.

Why Frankenstein?  According to the president and CEO of Indiana Humanities, it is a powerful book that raises big questions about right and wrong, how we treat people and the relationship between science and society. That makes this classic an important book to read as a community and as a state.

Books will be available for checkout prior to the book discussion. Refreshments will be provided.

Call 765.628.3534 to register
