Mary Shelley wrote her novel more than a century before Boris Karloff brought the monster to film. The origins of this infamous monster can be traced to a gathering along the shores of Lake Geneva. It was here, in the summer of 1816, following an afternoon reading German ghost stories, that British poet Lord Byron issued a challenge to his guests to compose their own supernatural tale. Join us to explore how and why this amazing story has affected us until this very day.
