Books of dystopia are meant to warn us of a distant future that can (and sometimes does) occur. This book club’s aim is to read dystopian books and discuss their parallels with contemporary times.
The Dystopia Book Club meets online via the Zoom platform on the third Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m.
Unfortunately, this book club is full and not accepting new members. Please select another book club or email email@example.com to put your name on a waiting list.
