On November 14, 2004, the Milwaukee Public Library sponsored a panel discussion related to the traveling Frankenstein exhibit. The panelists were bioethicist Dr. Art Derse, Prof. Diane Hoeveler, author Bill Gagliani, with librarian Beverly DeWeese as moderator. Discussion on Mary Shelley's FRANKENSTEIN ranged from its feminist themes and horror tropes, questions of medical ethics, and the many film adaptations of the engrossing tale, along with various interpretations of the "monster" and its "creator," and the work's amazing continued relevance.

The discussion ranges widely

A spirited discussion that could have lasted several more hours!
