Event description

Description

To celebrate the 200th anniversary of the publication of Mary Shelley’s science fiction classic, Frankenstein, WestportWRITES is challenging writers to follow in her legendary footsteps.

Writers will recreate the “challenge” laid out by Lord Byron to his guests Percy Bysshe Shelley and Mary Shelley in the rainy summer of 1816: Let’s “each write a ghost story.” The library will become the Villa Diodati, and there will be writing challenges, readings and a screening of ‘Frankenstein” to keep everyone inspired.
