The world’s first Science Fiction novel, Frankenstein, was written by a 19-year-old named Mary Shelley.  The story of how she came to write such a novel reveals the painful struggle of a brilliant and rebellious mind. Born of two idealistic parents, Mary turned her back on 19th century English social norms to have a relationship with romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley.

Come and be enchanted by nationally touring actress and award-winning storyteller Megan Wells, as she tells Mary Shelley’s true story of that famous “dark and stormy night.”
