Pages Through the Ages: '1984'

Wed, May 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Free

Pages Through the Ages is a book discussion group focused on both historical nonfiction and fiction. This month the group will discuss George Orwell's 1984

Winston Smith toes the party line, rewriting history to satisfy the demands of the Ministry of Truth. With each lie he writes, Winston grows to hate the party that seeks power for its own sake and persecutes those who dare to commit thoughtcrimes. But as he starts to think for himself, Winston can’t escape the fact that Big Brother is always watching...

A startling and haunting novel, 1984 creates an imaginary world that is completely convincing from start to finish. 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.

All history buffs are welcome! Copies of the books are available at The Westport Library patron service desk or electronically.
