Thursday Morning Book Club

Thursday Morning Book Club

Join us in discussing Brave New World by Aldous Huxley on Thursday, October 18 at 10:00 am.

 

 

 

Aldous Huxley's profoundly important classic of world literature, Brave New World, is a searching vision of an unequal, technologically-advanced future where humans are genetically bred, socially indoctrinated, and pharmaceutically anesthetized to passively uphold an authoritarian ruling order--all at the cost of our freedom, full humanity, and, perhaps, our souls.

 

Written in the shadow of the rise of fascism during the 1930s, Brave New World likewise speaks to a 21st-century world dominated by mass-entertainment, technology, medicine and pharmaceuticals, the arts of persuasion, and the hidden influence of elites.

 

The Thursday Morning Book Club meets in the Tutoring rooms on the Upper Level. Registration is not required, and new members are welcome! If you’re interested in learning more, please contact Joelene at jdiana@ccpa.net.
