Jefferson Book Club Selection for September: Brave New World

Brave New World coverBrave New World by Aldous Huxley is the September selection for the Jefferson Book Club.

For its science-fiction themed election, book club members chose this classic that’s been getting renewed attention after the Snowden NSA leaks. From the publisher’s site: “The astonishing novel Brave New World, originally published in 1932, presents Aldous Huxley’s legendary vision of a world of tomorrow utterly transformed. In Huxley’s darkly satiric yet chillingly prescient imagining of a “utopian” future, humans are genetically designed and pharmaceutically anesthetized to passively serve a ruling order. A powerful work of speculative fiction that has enthralled and terrified readers for generations, it remains remarkably relevant to this day as both a warning to be heeded and as a thought-provoking, yet satisfying, entertainment.”

Join your colleagues for the next Jefferson Book Club discussion on Thursday, September 12  from 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm in room 200a Scott Library.

All students, faculty, and staff welcome. Lunch will be provided. Copies available from Jefferson Bookstore at a 30% discount and at Scott Library. If you’re not already a member, please take a moment to join!
