When Mary Shelley published Frankenstein she launched a new genre of literature that blurred the boundaries of the possible, and women have remained key influencers shaping the contours of speculative fiction. Join this group to discuss how feminist perspectives reveal the seen and unseen while blending reality into surreality. Known and celebrated for their literary craft, we’ll also explore how these foundational authors use elements of story to convey social criticism and their techniques for making the fantastic believable.
