Book Island Reading

On Wednesday May 27 at 2PM, there was a reading at Book Island. Selina Grene had been reading George Orwell's "Animal Farm" for some weeks, and this was the reading of the last part.

2pm Book Island - Selina Greene reads the final part of Animal Farm by George Orwell. Next week we will begin another dystopian classic... Do join us.

For those who don't know, the story was a cautionary tale by George Orwell about how revolutions can all too easily end up the same old oppression under a new set of masters. In the story, a farm is run by a farmer uncaring of his animals, and the creatures rise up to throw him out. But the animals are betrayed by their leaders, the pigs, whom end up using the revolution for their own selfish ends.
