Roseanne Montillo, "The Lady and Her Monsters"

Tuesday   TIME:  7:00 pm to

The macabre meets art in this startling blend of grotesque 19th century science and fascinating literary creation that examines the horrors behind Mary Shelley’s gothic masterpiece, Frankenstein.



A highly entertaining blend of literary analysis, lore and scientific history, told with the verve and ghoulish fun of a Tim Burton film, The Lady and Her Monsters traces the origins of the greatest horror story of all time as a centerpiece from which to explore the frightful milieu in which it was written. Author Roseanne Montillo recounts how Shelley’s Victor Frankenstein mirror actual scientists of the period—curious and daring iconoclasts whom were influenced by their predecessors and obsessed with the inner workings of the human body.
