Nineteen Eighty-Four

September 12th, 2013 · No Comments · Book Group, Books, City Library, Events, Main Branch

1984This month our Brown Bag Book Club will be reading Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell.  This is George Orwell’s vision of what our future could be, or maybe some aspects are already here.  How does Orwell’s vision measure up to our 21st century reality?  This book has surged in popularity in light of recent events.  Sales of Nineteen Eighty-Four increased by up to 7,000% (seven thousand percent) within the first week of the 2013 mass surveillance leaks. Plan to join us at lunchtime on Tuesday, September 24th, from 12:15-1:30 PM, unless, of course, you think “Big Brother” might be watching you. For more information contact Information Desk at 624-6550 ext. 319.
