Turlock Library Book Club

Wednesday, Oct. 3, 10:30 am
This month's selection is Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury.

Guy Montag is a fireman. In his world, where television rules and literature is on the brink of extinction, firemen start fires rather than put them out. His job is to destroy the most illegal of commodities, the printed book. Montag never questions the destruction and ruin his actions produce, returning each day to his bland life and wife, Mildred. But then he meets an eccentric young neighbor, Clarisse, who introduces him to a past where people didn't live in fear and to a present where one sees the world through the ideas in books instead of the mindless chatter of television.

A limited number of copies are available at the Turlock Library.  For more information, please call the library at 209-664-8100.
