Author Visit: The Heartbreaks & Triumphs of a Long Distance Knitter


In Skein: The Heartbreaks & Triumphs of a Long Distance Knitter, author Christen Mattix recounts how she stumbled upon an unusual way of meeting her Fairhaven neighbors when she decided to knit a half-mile blue rope from a public bench to Bellingham Bay. During those three and a half years of knitting at the bench, Mattix meets her loveable and quirky neighbors, visits a Trappist Monastery, falls in love, and transforms from introverted artist to a catalyst for community connections.

Happy 200th Birthday, Frankenstein


Although regarded as Gothic sensationalism when first published – both for its lurid tale of a scientist driven mad by his obsession to animate the dead and for the surprising news that the author was nineteen-year-old Mary Shelley – Frankenstein has resonated widely in the popular imagination, most notably in theater and cinema. Over the two centuries since its publication, the work has also served as a vivid allegory in debates about technology, slavery, and universal suffrage. Led by literature and film scholar Lance Rhoades, this multi-media presentation considers how Shelley addressed some of humankind’s greatest concerns with a creation that took on a life of its own.
