(ST. JOSEPH, Mo) This year marks the 200th anniversary of the classic story of Frankenstein. To celebrate, the east hills library held an event celebrating the novel written by Mary Shelley. It all kicked off with a lecture on the meaning of the popular monster -- exploring why the famous story still holds up today.

"It's a horror novel so its the idea of a monster and it 's scary, but its so much more than that," Dawn Terrick, Missouri Western State University Proffesor, said. "It's really a novel that holds a mirror up to us as individuals and as a society."

After the lecture, kids were treated to a movie in the theater as well as crafts and other activites.

Cold Temperatures continue through the day Sunday. We will see mostly sunny skies with highs in the upper 10s to lower 20s. While the sun will be out for the game tomorrow, we have some northerly winds gusting between 20 to 25mph making it feel much colder. Wind chills will only be brushing 0 by kickoff. If you are headed to arrowhead tomorrow, make sure you bundle up. Temperatures will hold in the 20s and 30s through the first half of the week and we will see some chances for rain and warmer weather after midweek.
