This month, we will discuss the classic novel, 1984 by George Orwell (published in 1949), listening time, 13.5 hours. Winston Smith wrestles with oppression in Oceania, a place where the Party scrutinizes human actions with ever-watchful Big Brother. Defying a ban on individuality, Winston dares to express his thoughts in a diary & pursues a relationship with Julia. These criminal deeds bring Winston into the eye of the opposition, who then must reform the nonconformist.

Please RSVP to Melissa at: (847) 510-2060.
