George Orwell’s classic (and short!) book will be up for discussion at the first ever “Manchester Climate Monthly” reading group event. It’s happening on Monday 6th February, from 7pm, in the front room at the Waterhouse Pub, Princess Street (literally in the shadow of Manchester Town Hall…) (map).
Come along and mingle with other people as we discuss how language can be used to shape the perception of reality (heavy!). What would an updated version say? Perhaps – “all low-carbon lifestyles are equal, but some are more equal than others”?
It’s free, of course, We only ask that –
a) you have recently (last year or two) read the book
b) you listen to others’ viewpoints without peddling an ideology
c) you buy some food and/or drink so we don’t look like freeloaders…
Here’s a full-length animated version of the book!
