What is Frankenreads?

Frankenreads is a project of the Keats-Shelley Association of America, funded by a Chairman’s grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein, or The Modern Prometheus (1818) by encouraging people around the world to organize or participate in events celebrating the novel — especially by conducting public readathons of the entire novel on Halloween Day 2018 and in “Frankenweek,” October 24-31, 2018. The central Frankenreads event is a live public reading of Frankenstein in Washington DC on Wednesday, October 31st, 2018. Anyone and everyone is welcome to organize their own Frankenreads event!
