The Handmaid's Tale Book Discussion Group

Wed, Sep 20, 2017 7:00pm | US/Central



The Bensenville Library is proud to announce the 12th annual Bensenville Reads program! Each year, the Library selects a book, author, or theme to promote reading in the community.

This year we have selected the theme “Dystopian Futures”. The genre goes back to H.G. Wells’ 1895 classic “The Time Machine” and has recently swelled in popularity for both Adult and Young Adult audiences, with some classic novels returning to best sellers lists. The five books we’ve selected this year are a mix of classics and more contemporary works. Copies of the books are available at the Library.

You are invited to join us for a series of book groups discussing each selected title, as well as a special presentation on post-apocalyptic survival training.
