Bring Frankenstein to Life – 1 LEU

IH Frankenstein LogoWhen it comes to asking the hard questions at the heart of scientific investigation, perhaps no book has ever topped Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. This remarkable novel, which turns 200 in 2018, is the center of One State/One Story, an ambitious statewide read presented by Indiana Humanities and the Indiana State Library. Join us for a one-hour webinar to learn about ways to get your library or school involved with this fun and stimulating statewide project. We’ll present a detailed overview of what resources, including funds, books and more, will be available, and walk you through how to apply to take part. We’ll also share creative ideas for how to build community and school programs around this amazing book. Librarians who participate can earn one hour of LEU credit. One State/One Story: Frankenstein is part of Quantum Leap, a special initiative of Indiana Humanities that explores the spirit of creativity and problem-solving that occurs when we bridge the humanities with science, technology, engineering, math and medicine.
