Jeanette Winterson: Frankisstein


Central Library Downtown

  Save Event

Lesbian literary icon Winterson has been longlisted for the Man Booker Prize for this queer modern-day take on Frankenstein. A trans doctor named Ry Shelley encounters a couple of powerful men, Ron Lord and Victor Stein, who want to use them for sketchy trans- or posthumanist purposes. Stein is an idealistic but arrogant scientist; Lord, crudely misogynist, sounds Jeffrey-Epstein-cuckoo. Hear Winterson read and stay on for a Q&A.
