Waukesha Reads 2012 Selects George Orwell’s 1984

Waukesha Reads is proud to announce 1984 by George Orwell as their book for 2012!

Written in 1948, 1984 was George Orwell’s chilling prophecy about the future. And while 1984 has come and gone, Orwell’s narrative is timelier than ever.

The novel can be summed up in its most famous quote, “Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.”

Join us in October as we explore this book and its themes with a broad variety of community-wide events.
