It’s the literary manifestation of our anxieties and excitement surrounding technology. While science fiction is associated with Mars, robots, and cyberpunk, its origin story is shaped throughout several centuries. This includes The Age of Enlightenment, the Industrial Revolution, and…Frankenstein? Check out the origin of science fiction in a brand new episode of It’s Lit!

It’s Lit! is part of THE GREAT AMERICAN READ, a eight-part series that explores and celebrates the power of reading. This all leads to a nationwide vote of America’s favorite novel.
