The winter Iola Reads selection will cover Mary Shelleys classic horror tale, Frankenstein.
At once a Gothic thriller, a passionate romance and a cautionary tale about the dangers of science, the 201-year-old classic tells the story of a committed science student Victor Frankenstein.
Obsessed with discovering the cause of generation and life and bestowing animation upon lifeless matter, Frankenstein assembles a human being from stolen body parts, but upon bringing it to life, he recoils in horror at the creatures hideousness.
