January Book Club

January 21 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Fahrenheit 451 – Ray Bradbury
Date: January 21st 7pm

Guy Montag is a fireman. In his world, where television rules and literature is on the brink of extinction, firemen start fires rather than put them out. His job is to destroy the most illegal of commodities, the printed book, along with the houses in which they are hidden.

Montag never questions the destruction and ruin his actions produce, returning each day to his bland life and wife, Mildred, who spends all day with her television “family.” But then he meets an eccentric young neighbor, Clarisse, who introduces him to a past where people didn’t live in fear and to a present where one sees the world through the ideas in books instead of the mindless chatter of television, and Montag begins to question everything he has ever known.

 

Newcomers are always welcome!
