PNW Party

PNW's Hammond campus library held a gala birthday celebration for Frankenstein on Thursday, October 25, 2018 with over 50 attendees. A lively discussion with Dr. Mita Choudhury's ENG 201 class followed a detailed demonstration of Frankenstein monster make-up by library staffer Alan McCafferty.

We served up a deliciously devilish Frankenstein cake (courtesy of Emily Waldkoetter) and had some fun goodie giveaways, including graphic novels, bookmarks, pins, temp tattoos, candy and special prizes!

Thomas Edison's 1910 silent film version of "Frankenstein" rounded out the party agenda.
