Join us for a book discussion on how Mary came up with the idea of Frankenstein in Mary Molds a Monster by Lisa Mullarkey and John Mullarkey. In the book you join Jacob and Margaret as they travel back in time to Lake Geneva, Switzerland. It’s 1816, and George Gordon, Lord Byron has challenged Mary and Percy Shelley and himself to compose a scary story. Jacob and Margaret know that Mary’s tale will be Frankenstein. But Mary is struggling with writer’s block! Can Jacob and Margaret help Mary mold a monster? After our discussion we will try our hand and being a mad scientist like Dr. Frankenstein and learn about the parts of the brain and perform experiments on monster brains we will have in our lab that day. Suggested grades for this book is 3-6, but all ages are welcome. Free copies of the book can be picked up at Cannelton Library.
