It was a dark and stormy night, so the legend says, when a group of friends held a competition to see who could write the best ghost story. From this contest, Mary Shelley produced her most famous work, Frankenstein. As part of the University of Minnesota English Department’s bicentenary events for Frankenstein, the graduate students of the Eighteenth-and-Nineteenth-Century Subfield host a reading of student ghost stories on Halloween night. We will celebrate the Halloween season and Shelley’s lasting influence on horror and science fiction! [Pillsbury Hall room 110; closest parking: Church Street Garage]
