Readings, both Creative Writing and literature

A Public Reading of Orwell's 1984

What's the Big Deal with Orwell? A Public Reading of 1984


George Orwell's 1984 (pub. 1949) has been at the top of the best seller lists since late January. Why is that? Come hear for yourself as members of the UGA community read aloud the entirety of this dystopian classic: 11-4 on 21-22 February, in front of Park Hall. Whether you read it in high school, read it last week, or have never read it, Orwell's 1984 is worth hearing again.

Reading by poets Christopher Salerno, Georgia Poetry Prize winner, and Daniel Schoonebeek
