1984 by George Orwell April 26, 7:00pm at the Library

"The year 1984 has come and gone, but George Orwell's prophetic, nightmarish vision in 1949 of the world we were becoming is timelier than ever.  1984 is still the great modern classic of "negative utopia" -- a startlingly original and haunting novel that creates an imaginary world that is completely convincing, from the first sentence to the last four words.  No one can deny the novel's hold on the imaginations of whole generations, or the power of its admonitions -- a power that seems to grow, not lessen, with the passage of time." -- from publisher.

Check out this classic novel (we have extra copies available at the library) and then join the group for an interesting evening!  New members are always welcome.  The discussion is held in the Library meeting room and is free and open to the public.

Future book discussion titles include:

May 24: The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead

June 28: The Widow by Fiona Barton

July 26: The Residence by Kate Andersen Brower

Aug. 23: Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly
