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.
The branch libraries in Beaumont are taking part in the FrankenReads project throughout the month of October.
The Friends of the Beaumont Public Library System are funding the prizes for our FrankenReads Trivia Challenge. In recognition of the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, we invite all FrankenReaders (18+) to participate in Beaumont Public Library System’s FrankenReads Trivia Challenge. Beginning Monday, October 1 simply pick up a weekly game sheet (they change each week) from any of the library branches, complete and return it by close of business that Friday. Correctly answered game sheets will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win the weekly prize. Please see any of the branch libraries for a list of the prizes.
