The West End Book Club will meet to discuss A Clockwork Orange, the 1963 classic by Anthony Burgess (and featuring Alex the droog as narrator), on Tuesday, September 20, at 12:30 p.m., in the small meeting room on the second floor.
Copies are available at the branch. Please pick one up, and join us for a discussion of what the New York Times calls "a brilliant novel . . . a savage satire on the distortions of the single and collective minds," and what the Modern Library ranks 65th on its list of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century.
A screening of Stanley Kubrick's 1971 film version of the novel (Rated R) will follow on Thursday, September 29, at 1:30 p.m. Light refreshments ("milk-plus mesto") will be served.
