Meet my monsters
Proud to announce that part of my own collection of Frankensteiniana forms the core of the new exhibition hosted by the University of Virginia's Rare Book School in . . . drum roll, please . . . the Dome Room of Mr. Jefferson's Rotunda.
Good company. Graduating fourth-year student Shannon Gorman is the curator.
It's called "The Monster Among Us: Frankenstein from Mary Shelley to Mel Brooks," and it's open to the public, 9 to 4:45, seven days a week. The exhibition will be in the Dome Room through next October.
