Frankenstein Day Giveaway

August 30, 2022

Frankenstein Day is an unofficial holiday but we love it all the same! It’s meant to celebrate Mary Shelley, the author who wrote the classic monster story. She was born on this day, August 30, in 1797, and Frankenstein was first published in 1818.

We are holding a giveaway on our Vancouver Island Regional Library + Fans Facebook page to celebrate Mary Shelley and her Frankenstein. One person could win custom-created Frankenstein buttons (just in time for Halloween!).

*The book is not included as a giveaway prize.*
