Lecture: Frankenstein-The Centuries and the Alchemy, Before the Legend

Tuesday, October 24 / 6:30 pm
The Gallery @ The Library / Civic Center Library, 3839 N. Drinkwater Blvd.

Stories of a 16th century alchemist named Frankenstein, who died in odd circumstances in the Rhine Valley during the course of his experiments, circulated throughout Western Europe. These tales were joined by 17th century Czech and Judeo-Spanish legends of a Cabbalistic rabbi who had created a pseudo-human, a golem, that had transgressed the boundaries between Human and God. What was the influence, if any, of these stories on Mary Shelley's Frankenstein?

Dia de los Muertos:

Altar Stories with Cultural Coalition

Dia de los Muertos, or “Day of the Dead”, is a festive and joyful Mexican holiday, celebrated the first two days in November. It blends pre-Hispanic indigenous beliefs and traditions with modern life to celebrate and honor one’s ancestors. Creating personalized altars signifying important memories and family stories is one important aspect of the holiday. Telling personal stories about different cultural experiences can significantly help in the development of mutual understanding and empathy between people.
