Presented by Madame Sarah

People have always gathered around the fire to tell each other scary stories, but how did the horror and science fiction genres that we know and love begin?

Learn about how Mary Shelley and other authors started writing the first novels about the monsters we know and love today.

Madame Sarah studied Literary and Textual Studies and continues to make it everyone else’s problem. She has always been fascinated by the gothic and horrifying tales of the Victorian period. She loves studying history as well as modern literature and movies. Her hobbies include knitting, reading, and playing board games with friends. She lives in Cincinnati, Ohio with her spouse and hopes to own a home with a cute and furry familiar one day.
