This year marks the 200th anniversary of the publication of Mary Shelley's 1818 novel Frankenstein: or, The Modern Prometheus, one of the most famous monster tales — and sci-fi novels — ever written. To celebrate the bicentennial, the Huntington Library hosts Frankenstein: Then and Now, 1818-2018, a two-day conference with scholars, writers, scientists and directors discussing various topics inspired by the book, including its origins, publication, cultural and scientific impact, and film/stage adaptations over the years. A highlight is Saturday's screening of Frankenstein, the 2011 National Theater of Great Britain production, directed by Danny Boyle and starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller, who alternated the roles of Dr. Frankenstein and the Creature.
