It's Alive! It's ALIVE! - Frankenstein by Mary Shelley - HFBC 31

After summer in paradox, Helping Friendly Book Club returns!

Join us September 25th at The Wild Detectives to discuss the 31st book on our Quest to discover the lost Secrets to Eternal Joy and Never Ending Splendor - the original “Frankenstein, or the Modern Prometheus” by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley.

Prometheus stole fire from the gods and gave it to the humans, is there a parallel here with our Quest for SEJNES? A parable, if you will? As we get closer and closer to discovering All the Inherent Knowledge in the Universe, we need to take every possible precaution to make sure we don’t inadvertently set off some sort of nuclear knowledge meltdown. Is it possible to illuminate too much curiosity, or do we just need to properly prepare our heart and soul first so we don’t grow out of proportion in one direction only? With great Knowledge comes great responsibility. Let’s discuss!

Come make brain honey will all your old friends and enjoy the convivial sociability of our favorite bookstore bar, The Wild Detectives in Bishop Arts on Wednesday, September 25th at 8pm.

We will be voting on our next three books to read at this meeting as well. If you know where we should search for the SEJNES next, be sure to send in your nominations ASAP so we can get them on the ballot.

Follow your pinecone, and bring a curious friend. Follow your pinecone and bring someone curious. We'll have a Cosmic Door Prize and a few tricks up our sleeves too, as usual. Can’t wait to get the band back together!

If you need a copy of the book, here’s the FULL TEXT.

The world was to me a secret which I desired to divine. Curiosity, earnest research to learn the hidden laws of nature, gladness akin to rapture, as they were unfolded to me, are among the earliest sensations I can remember.
— Victor Frankenstein
