A Visit with Mary Shelley

This one-woman event is a unique opportunity to meet Mary Shelley, author of Frankenstein. Learn about Shelley’s life, love, and losses and how she transformed her experiences into her art. In this dynamic portrayal, Adrienne Provenzano considers the creative process in depth, compares different versions of Frankenstein, and puts Mary Shelley’s life as a 19th century literary woman into historical context. The audience members have an opportunity to speak with Mary Shelley on how creative expression plays a role in their own lives.

Adrienne Provenzano is an accomplished professional musician, actress, and educator. Certified as an interpretive guide through the National Association for Interpretation, Provenzano’s historic portrayals are engaging and informative. Mary Shelley, Gene Stratton-Porter, Sarah Bolton, Amelia Earhart, and Beatrix Potter are among the significant women of history that Provenzano portrays.
