News Clipping: Monster challenge . . . could you be a Mary Wollstonecraft-Shelley?
The famous creator of Frankenstein, writer Mary Wollstonecraft-Shelley, lived briefly in Boscombe in the first half of the 19th century, and is buried in Bournemouth. There's a road named after her on the clifftop, and now a festival is being organised in her memory by another Bournemouth writer, Christine Aziz. Christine is looking for 10 women aged between 16 and 50 to characterise Mary Shelley at different stages of her life, at a special event between 1st and 3rd October.
