Why We Can’t Put Dystopian Fiction Down
March 12, 2019 at 7:00 PM | Jersey City, NJ | Apple Tree House
When you read or watched Lord of the Flies or the Hunger Games, how many times did you think to yourself (or maybe say out loud), if I were in that situation, what would I do? Or perhaps you considered bigger thoughts about the response of society in general? Dystopian fiction, especially YA, is often thrilling to read and encourages a look at the world around us and conversations about our own responses to the concept of collapse and survival. In this “book talk,” the odds ARE in your favor for having a fascinating conversation.
