Celebrating 200 Years Of Frankenstein


Indiana Humanities is celebrating 200 years of Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein”.
It’s doing that by sending poets to inspire students.
The poets are experts on the history of the classic novel.
And today one high school in the Valley got the chance to take part in the celebration.
Sullivan High School and Sullivan County Public Library partnered to host poet and guest speaker Adam Henze.
He taught students about the Mary Shelley, who as a teen created the monster that we know and love today.
Students got the opportunity to hear Henze present live poetry.
They even got to write their poetry in a poetry slam, which they fittingly called, Franken-slam.
Melissa Rinehart with the Sullivan County Library says, “my main goal is for them to be inspired, I think. I would like for them to realize that, hey I could go on in the future and be a poet. That is something that you don’t hear a lot of people, you know, as a profession doing poetry.
The library received a grant from the Indiana Humanities to host the event
