Blue Hill Public Library


George Stevens Academy English teacher Erin McCormick will lead a discussion group about Mary Shelley’s classic novel Frankenstein, meeting for three sessions at 6:00 PM on Fridays October 19th and 26th, and November 2nd at the Blue Hill Public Library.

This program is part of “One Book, Many Conversations,” a nationwide volunteer effort by organizations, “dedicated to the importance of conversation in a democracy and the ability to share our many perspectives as a vital aspect of a thriving society.” During October, individuals from around the country and internationally will gather in small groups, online and locally, each led by a moderator, to discuss Frankenstein.

2018 marks the 200th anniversary of the publication of Frankenstein, which raises a broad and powerful range of questions, including the nature of social responsibility, the ethics of scientific inquiry, and what it means to be human.

This discussion is free and everyone is welcome, but space is limited and advance registration is required using our web calendar at www.bhpl.net or by calling the library at 374-5515. Registration should be completed by Saturday, October 13th to ensure the program has enough participation. Copies of the book will be available to check out in advance at the library. This event is free and everyone is welcome. For more information call the library at 374-5515.
