Calendar – Education – Sci-Fi on Tap: Brave New World – June 21

June 18, 2017

Marquette – Sci-Fi on Tap: Brave New World will be held on Wednesday, June 21 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Tap Room of the Ore Dock Brewing Company in downtown Marquette.

Since the summer reading theme at the Peter White Public Library is “Build a Better World,” the evening will begin with utopias. The first novel, “Brave New World” by Aldous Huxley, published in 1932, explores how genetic breeding, social indoctrination and pharmaceuticals can create a utopian society. The event will include a discussion on what it takes to create a utopian society, but also whether the novel holds up as both a story and science fiction over the 85 years since it was written.

There is no admission charge to attend. For more information, visit www.pwpl.info or call 226-4318. … Read the rest
