First Tuesday Book Club, December 1

For December, we're reading Brave New World: with the essay "Brave New World Revisited" by Aldous Huxley.

Summary: Huxley's vision of the future comes to life in his astonishing 1931 novel Brave New World--a world of tomorrow in which capitalist civilization has been reconstituted through the most efficient scientific and psychological engineering--and its sequel, written thirty years after his classic novel of the future, in which Huxley describes the shocking scientific devices and techniques available to any group in a position to manipulate society. 

We will be meeting in the Visalia Branch Blue Room to discuss this book on December 1 from 6:30pm - 7:45pm.
