Daniel M. Kimmel '77: Neilly Series Lecture

Date

Description

In 1818, Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein, creating the iconic concept, and incidentally creating modern science fiction. In 1935, Elsa Lanchester married the monster.

And now, Daniel M. Kimmel ’77 updates the myth, and tells the tale from the point of view of the most important character: the Father of the Bride of Frankenstein.

This is not Ms. Shelley’s monster, but a dazzling urbanite, literate and thoughtful… and Jewish?

Film critic and 2018 Skylark Award (formally known as the Edward E. Smith Memorial Award for Imaginative Fiction) winner Daniel M. Kimmel ‘77 will speak about science fiction, his creative process, and his latest work, “Father of the Bride of Frankenstein.”
