Reading Orwell’s “1984” in 2024

Wed Aug 21, 2024
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Looking back at George Orwell’s book “1984” 40 years after the date, is there anything it predicted with which we can still resonate today?  What did it get right (if anything) and what was missed? What can we learn?

In one of his unique performances, Clay Jenkinson will embody the book “1984” and give voice to the book itself, in conversation with historian and CU Boulder Professor of the American West Dr. Patty Limerick.
