Featured Friday: The Monster We Have learned to Love: Frankenstein’s Monster in Popular Culture

Frankenstein - web

Just in time for Halloween, we explore Frankenstein in popular culture.  Dr. Garth Jowett of the University of Houston will examine how the famed monster created by Dr. Frankenstein was changed over the years to become the most recognized and sympathetic of all monsters in popular culture. Some clips from movies will be shown to illustrate this change in public reception since the nineteenth century. Join us on October 26 for Dr. Jowett’s presentation. His presentation will begin at 11 AM in the library’s meeting room. 

This presentation is the latest installment in the library’s Featured Friday series. These monthly programs offer a variety of lectures, movies and special programs of cultural, historical and local interest.

Refreshments will be provided by the Friends of the Deer Park Public Library. No registration is required and all are welcome to attend. There is no admission fee. The library is located at 3009 Center St., Deer Park, TX 77536.
