We will be reading Mary Shelley’s ‘Frankenstein’.

A terrifying vision of scientific progress without moral limits, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein leads the reader on an unsettling journey from the sublime beauty of the Swiss alps to the desolate waste of the arctic circle.

Obsessed with the idea of creating life itself, Victor Frankenstein plunders graveyards for the material with which to fashion a new being, shocking his creation to life with electricity. But this botched creature, rejected by its creator and denied human companionship, sets out to destroy Frankenstein and all that he holds dear. Mary Shelley’s chilling gothic tale was conceived when she was only eighteen, living with her lover Percy Shelley near Lord Byron’s villa on Lake Geneva. It would become the world’s most famous work of Gothic horror.

Tina Daniel – April guest speaker @ Cafe Sundet
Apr 25 @ 11:45 – 12:30

Tina Daniel is our April guest speaker.

Tina will be telling a gripping tale about her ascent of Mt. Kilimanjaro – Africa’s highest mountain, and the world’s highest freestanding mountain. The purpose of the climb was to collect funds for charity together with a team of 28 others.

Tina is a young woman who trained and prepared for the walk for many months. Her trip was delayed four months due to an eye problem last summer, but finally in January she was able to travel, leaving her family in Denmark.
Tina will talk about the trip, the hardships and disappointments all the way through to the thrill and excitement of facing such a challenge. As she came down she told her mother, Jean Gram-Andersen, “never again”. Let’s hear what Tina now feels after some months. There was tragedy on the mountain that we sincerely hope Tina has been able to overcome. She should be proud of her efforts and we look forward very much to her talk.

We will be reading “Please Look After Mom “ by the Man Booker Prize Asia winner, Kyung-sook Shin, translated by Che Young Kim.

When sixty-nine-year-old So-Nyo is separated from her
husband among the crowds of the Seoul subway station, her
family begins a desperate search to find her. Yet as long-held secrets and private sor- rows begin to reveal themselves, they are forced to wonder: how well did they actually know the woman they called Mom? The novel explores the loss, self-recrimination, and in some cases, self-discovery caused by the mother’s disappearance. The novel also considers themes related to the self-sacrifice of mothers in general (and in Korean in particular), the relationship between memories of the past and realities of the present, and the chameleonic aspects of identity.
