Panel discussion on 'Frankenstein' and screening of 'Bride of Frankenstein'

Mary Shelley’s novel, Frankenstein, is 200 years old. The book, published by a twenty-one-year old English woman in 1818, has had an enduring and compelling influence on Western culture.

The 1935 film Bride of Frankenstein has been described as "the best of the Frankenstein movies" (Roger Ebert, 1999).
