In 1818, Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein, creating the iconic concept, and incidentally creating modern science fiction. In 1935, Elsa Lanchester married the monster.
And now, Daniel M. Kimmel ’77 updates the myth, and tells the tale from the point of view of the most important character: the Father of the Bride of Frankenstein.
This is not Ms. Shelley’s monster, but a dazzling urbanite, literate and thoughtful… and Jewish?
Film critic and 2018 Skylark Award (formally known as the Edward E. Smith Memorial Award for Imaginative Fiction) winner Daniel M. Kimmel ‘77 will speak about science fiction, his creative process, and his latest work, “Father of the Bride of Frankenstein.”
The lecture is free and open to the public. Reserved parking is available in the Library Lot. For more information, call 585-275-4461.
