Related to the Animal Farm Timeline that just went up, I have a talk scheduled with Nicholas Birns, a New School Colleague, at Molasses books.
Molasses Books is excited to announce the second installment in our monthly lecture series:
Animal Farm: 2013, 1998, 1954, 1946, 1879.
John Reed, the author of Snowball's Chance, the controversial parody of Animal Farm recently rereleased by Melville House, and Nicholas Birns, the author of Theory After Theory, discuss the legacy and surprising history of Animal Farm, from Russian gulags to U.S. schoolroom and MI5. For Orwell enthusiasts and detractors, this event is a must—a live exploration of a history that's often, quite ironically, misremembered.
We are delighted to host Mr. Reed and Mr. Birns, both Professors at The New School and recommend that y'all show up on time, as space is extremely limited and seating even more so. Beer & wine, coffee & tea will be for sale! (no BYOB!) Entrance, as always, is free.
770 Hart Street, btwn Knickerbocker and Wilson — off the Dekalb L train.
