Still Alive! 200 Years of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein

Signs of Halloween are everywhere in the Ridgefield Library, many with a Frankenstein-inspired theme.  We are celebrating the 200th anniversary of the publication of Mary Shelley’s classic tale with an array of special programs and activities for all ages:  you can decorate and display a Franken-Pumpkin; learn the art of Monstrous Make-up;  join a Frankenstein book discussion;  attend a screening and lecture by Mark Edwards of Sacred Heart University on Frankenstein: Book to Movie; enjoy a very special presentation by Dr. Mark Schenker of Yale, Frankenstein’s Creature: A Monster for Its Time--and Oursand spend Halloween at our drop-in Frankenstein movie marathon (fans of Mel Brooks will not be disappointed!).  For dates, times and locations, please go to to download our special Frankenstein brochure.

Thank you to the Friends of the Ridgefield Library for their generous support of Still Alive! 200 Years of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein.  For more information and to access the Library’s full calendar of events, please go to
