Monster Kids: How Frankenstein Shaped the Pop Culture Landscape 

Greg Kishbaugh, the author of Bone Welder, a modern-day continuation of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, will be joining us on October 6th at 2:00 p.m. to present his program on how Frankenstein shaped our pop culture landscape. As his program description says, “The Frankenstein Monster has loomed large over our collective imaginations and has had an epic stranglehold on pop culture for decades. This presentation, non-academic and geared toward all audiences, of all ages, look at The Monster’s rise from the pages of Mary Shelley’s seminal book through the atmospheric Universal movies, to television, theater, comic books, toys and more. It examines the ways in which an entire generation of children obsessed with the macabre — the so-called Monster Kids — grew into some of the most influential shapers of modern pop entertainment.” Join us for this free program and learn more about the legendary figure!
