- Penetrating the Secrets of Nature
Visit Tompkins County Public Library this Fall when the American Library Association's Traveling Exhibition Frankenstein - Penetrating the Secrets of Nature arrives!
The exhibition encourages audiences to examine the intent of Mary Shelley's novel, Frankenstein, and to discuss Shelley's and their own views about personal and societal responsibility as it relates to science and other areas.
Reading Frankenstein first will enable you to fully appreciate the exhibition and to participate fully in all the activities planned for the Fall in partnership with Cornell University, Ithaca College Humanities Department, and members of the Discovery Trail.
