Seg. 1: Dodge Town In Antioch Park. Seg 2: Frankenstein's 200th Anniversary

Apr 3, 2018

Segment 1: Memories of the wild west are kept alive in Johnson County park.

For many kids who grew up near Antioch Park, 'Dodge Town' has been a place to relive the wild west. As the playground prepares to re-open after being remodeled, we take a nostalgic look back.

Segment 2, beginning at 11:51: Mary Shelley's classic novel celebrates bicentennial anniversary.

Mary Shelley's signature work Frankenstein: Or, The Modern Prometheus shaped an entire genre of storytelling. As 200 years have passed since its publication, we take a look at the science of the past that influenced Shelley, as well as how the work continues to shape scientific perspectives today.

"It's Alive! Frankenstein at 200: The Science Behind the Story" is on display now through August 31 at Linda Hall Library. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, visit LindaHall.org.
