NEW! Summer Book Club

Meets every 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month (May-Aug), 1-3 p.m.
Join our book club this summer! We plan on reading a book a month and discussing them every 1st & 3rd Saturday of the month here at the CWC. The first book will be picked by CWC staff and the rest of the books will be voted on by the members of the club. Our first book will be the classic sci-fi novel 1984, by George Orwell. We’ll be focusing on not only the story and its implication for modern readers, but also on Orwell’s craft and what we can take away from it and apply in our own writing.
Cost: Free. No registration required.

The full text of George Orwell's 1984 is available to read online. You can also check it out from the City Library or come into the CWC to read one of our copies.
