BehemothIn recent years a fascinating and popular subgenre of teen fiction has emerged called Steampunk.  Steampunk is science fiction fantasy set in the gas-lit world of the Victorian era.  It’s what the past would look like if the future had happened sooner.  Fashion styles are characterized by Victorian clothing such as corsets, pocket watches, and goggles.

Introduce yourself to the subgenre of steampunk by making a steampunk paper doll at the Kennebunk Free Library that is both modern and old-fashioned at the same time.  Pre-register by calling 985-2173 x5 or by clicking Pre-register here.
