Frankenstein Talk - "One Book One Belmont"

  • Beech Street Center 266 Beech Street Belmont, MA (map)

The library will end its month-long celebration on the evening Nov. 1 at the Beech Street Center, 266 Beech St., Belmont, with biographer Charlotte Gordon, author of “Romantic Outlaws: The Extraordinary Lives of Mary Wollstonecraft and Her Daughter Mary Shelley.” Gordon will discuss Wollstonecraft’s influence on Shelley, as well as how the two “broke from the strictures that governed women’s conduct not once but time and again, profoundly challenging the moral code of the day.” For more information: visit, ask one of the library’s reference staff or call 617-993-2870.
