Written by Mary Shelley, FRANKENSTEIN: The Modern Prometheus is the first true science fiction novel. Years ahead of its time, the story has since become the inspiration for countless film and stage adaptations. Frankenstein is a living, breathing, gruesome outcome of scientific discovery. The piece raises an important universal question about the nature of innovation- just because it can be done, should it be done? Celebrate the 200th anniversary of this classic at your Carson Center!
