Dystopian Fiction Book Club – Spring Semester Update – Claire T. Carney Library

Dystopian XMass

Dystopian Fiction Book Club – Spring Semester Update
The Dystopian Fiction Book Club met in December for two illuminating discussions of Ray Bradbury’s classic novel, Fahrenheit 451.

This spring, we’ll be reading:

  • The Handmaid’s Tale, by Margaret Atwood (February meetings)
  • The Giver, by Lois Lowry (March)
  • Brave New World, by Aldous Huxley (April)

We hope you’ll enjoy The Handmaid’s Tale over the winter break, and arrive with lots of ideas and questions at the start of spring semester.

Winter is a lovely time to read! Have a happy, book-filled vacation.
