[close] A niche for the readers of Eric Arthur Blair's writings, among the groups for literature and fiction lovers. Eric Arthur Blair (25 June 1903–21 January 1950), better known by the pen name George Orwell, was an English author and journalist. Noted as a novelist and critic as well as a political and cultural commentator, Orwell is among the most widely admired English-language essayists of the 20th century. He is best known for two novels critical of totalitarianism in general, and Stalinism in particular: Animal Farm and Nineteen Eighty-Four. Both were written and published towards the end of his life.

[close] A neat little thing I created as an experiment for the book club I run at work. Read along with us as we work our way through the literary canon and beyond! *IMPORTANT* Because the Farmington Public Library is currently closed due to COVID-19, I'm working on creating a Discord server for this group. We still meet the 2nd Thursday of the month, at 6 pm, so make sure you've joined the server by then! I'll be working on ways to access digital copies of the books until our ILL service is back up and running.
