SALON TALKS | MARY SHELLEY AND THE BIRTH OF FRANKENSTEIN

A Curious Invitation presents: MARY SHELLEY and the BIRTH OF FRANKENSTEIN
with Miranda Seymour

Mary Shelley’s great novel “Frankenstein: or the Modern Prometheus” was first published 200 years ago in January 1818, changing the world of fiction forever.
Behind the tale of this remarkable novel is the tale of its extraordinary creator - Mary Shelley – who was just 19 when, on holiday with Percy Bysshe Shelley and Lord Byron in 1816, she first conceived the idea for the story that shook the world.
Join us for a special evening in celebration of Frankenstein’s 200th anniversary with Miranda Seymour - author of the definitive Mary Shelley biography. Miranda will be exploring the writing of the novel and the intricacies of Shelley’s life in a fascinating talk, woven around selected readings from Frankenstein and shining a light on the personality behind one of literature’s great classics.
