Frankenread Fun for Halloween!

Submitted by cleveland on Tue, 10/30/2018

To celebrate the 200th anniversary of the publication of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, the UGA Libraries are joining forces with the English Department to offer a host of Frankenstein related activities in the month of October. The Frankenreads events are part of an international celebration organized by the Keats-Shelley Association of America.

On Halloween, Wednesday October 31st our Frankenread will begin in UGA’s Main Library at 8am and continue until 6pm. In the spirit of the novel’s multiple voices, readers will be drawn from across the campus and the larger Athens community. The Frankenread will be accompanied by a slideshow of images drawn from popular culture and curated by Dr. Christopher Pizzino (UGA English).

The final 30 minutes of our epic reading will take place at Ciné, Athens’s local independent movie theater, and just prior to a screening of Bride of Frankenstein (1935). The Frankenstein read-a-thon is sponsored by the UGA Colloquium in Eighteenth- and Nineteenth-Century Literature, directed by Dr. Roxanne Eberle (Associate Professor, UGA English) and Dr. Casie LeGette (Associate Professor, UGA English), in collaboration with the Willson Center for Humanities and Arts, Ciné, and UGA’s Undergraduate English Association.

In addition to this epic “read-a-thon,” the library will host a movie marathon throughout the day in Lab A of the Main Library. There will be free popcorn and the opportunity to make your own Frankenstein memorabilia. 

During the entire month of October, the library will also present curated exhibits of Frankenstein texts and related materials.

Visit Hargrett Signature Gallery to see Making a Monster: A Writer’s Inspiration Installation as part of their History of the Book display.
