2014 Common Literature Experience

The 2014 Common Literature Experience is Mary Shelley's Frankenstein.

Frankenstein, a classic work of science fiction, often brings to mind Boris Karloff's character in the 1931 film, or the green-tinged monster masks worn for Halloween. The book, however, always surprises those who think they know the story. It is a thought-provoking tale that examines education, knowledge, society, and, ultimately, what it means to be human.

In celebration of the Common Literature Experience, the public is welcome to join first-year students in attending the Common Literature Convocation on Saturday August 23rd in the Chase Fine Arts Center at 9:30am.
