WHAT ARE WE READING? 2017-2018
The Reading Across Campus Program Committee is pleased to announce the Academic Year 2017-2018 common reading text: Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
 

Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus is a novel written by English author Mary Shelley that tells the story of Victor Frankenstein, a young scientist who creates a grotesque but sapient creature in an unorthodox scientific experiment. Shelley started writing the story when she was 18, and the first edition of the novel was published anonymously in London in 1818, when she was 20. Her name first appeared on the second edition, published in France in 1823.[1]
 
Frankenstein is widely available in many editions and formats, including multiple versions freely accessible through the AUD Library’s e-resources, so if you are looking for a good summer read, be sure to check out this classic work of speculative fiction. We look forward to many opportunities to discuss Mary Shelley’s novel in the coming academic year!
