BPL will be hosting a book discussion group on George Orwell's 1984 every month for 48 months beginning in January 2017. Each discussion cycle will be facilitated by a librarian, writer, community member, artist, etc. If you are interested in facilitating a 1984 discussion, please contact us for information on setting it up.
