Frankenstein and the Year "without a Summer"

Tue Aug 4, 2020
Various times

NYC's Morgan Library hosts a zoom session that highlights how creativity can blossom in difficult times.

A massive volcanic eruption in 1815 disrupted the global environment, leading to unseasonal weather and different catastrophes across the world. 1816 is the called the “Year Without A Summer” and teenage Mary Shelley spent the gloomy days indoors reading ghost stories with peers, including her husband, Percy Bysshe Shelley, and Lord Byron, and a writing competition between stir-crazy friends led to the genesis of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.
