Bilingual book club will discuss Frankenstein by Mary Shelley in English and Spanish. This meeting will be held in the morning at Swami's Café in Escondido.

The story of Victor Frankenstein and his anguished monster creation. Frankeinstein was a task to create a story that, in Mary Shelley’s own words, "would speak to the mysterious fears of our nature and awaken thrilling horror -- one to make the reader dread to look round, to curdle the blood, and quicken the beatings of the heart."

La historia de Victor Frankenstein y la creación de su monstruo angustiado. Frankenstein fue una tarea de crear una historia que, en las propias palabras de Mary Shelley, hablaran de los temores misteriosos de nuestra naturaleza y despertaran un horror emocionante—uno que le diera al lector temor de mirar alrededor, que le cortara la sangre y le acelerara el latido del corazón.
