Worlds of the Future: Speculative Novels and Nonfiction

What is the book's vision of the future-- a place where you would want to live? or want to avoid? What does this vision say about our present world?

"The beauty of dystopia is that it lets us vicariously experience future worlds - but we still have the power to change our own."--Ally Condie

 

Bring along a brownbag lunch and a book on the theme.  A selection is on display, or you may bring another favorite to discuss.

Kilton Library French Conversation Hour. The first Wednesday of the month at 5:15. Former Duke French professor, Martha van der Drift, hosts a free, monthly French conversation hour.

Topics and activities will evolve with interest.  A film in French follows the discussion, but participants do not need to attend both events (but, are certainly welcome too)!
