Jeanette Winterson - Frankissstein

Upcoming Event
Wednesday, October 23, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Winterson’s new novel time travels from Mary Shelley’s 1816 vision of Dr. Frankenstein’s creation to today’s cutting-age experiments with AI and robotics to explore what happens to relationships in a transhumanist world. The award-winning author of classics such as Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit, The Passion, and Written on the Body, Winterson deftly weaves multiple story lines, following characters including transgender doctor Ry Shelley, who falls in love with sex-tech pioneer Victor Stein; the ambitious Ron Lord, back home with his mother until his new line of sex dolls can take off; and the researchers at a cryogenic facility housing bodies awaiting a second life.
