Babson College arts and humanities lecturer Kellie A. Donovan Condron will lead a discussion of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley’s “Frankenstein, or the Modern Prometheus” at the Sherborn Library on Feb. 4 at 7 p.m. The snow date is Feb. 11. Shelley wrote the book and published it anonymously in 1818, during the Age of Enlightenment. The book’s themes on the nature of humanity, gender roles, and the role of science in shaping civilization will be explored. Donovan Condron’s interests include urban identity in the early 19th century, the gothic novel, women’s writing, consumerism and consumption in literature, and fairy tales, according to the Babson College website.
