Dorothy and Thomas Hoobler, “The Monsters: The Creation of Frankenstein”
June 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$5.00
Dorothy and Thomas Hoobler are prolific authors of books for adults, teenagers, and children. Their many awards include an Edgar from the Mystery Writers of America for their young-adult novel, In Darkness, Death. After encountering the story of Mary Shelley’s inspiration for Frankenstein, the Hooblers began to write about the intertwined lives of the three great authors who were present. Booklist called The Monsters “As exciting and fast-paced as a good novel. This book is an absolute must-read for anyone interested in literary genius and the lives of people gifted with it.”
