Fahrenheit 451 – Book Club
September 9 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Friday, September 9th at 6 pm @ the Hipp
Ray Bradbury’s 1953 dystopian novel Fahrenheit 451 has inspired generations to question the society we live in and strive to seek out knowledge, our greatest power. Today, it has inspired the Hippodrome to lead the city of Gainesville in a city-wide book club to go along with our 50th season production of the stage adaptation!
Please join the Hippodrome Theatre in reading this classic tale and come discuss your connection to its deeper themes and messages with us at the book club meeting on Friday, September 9th, at 6 pm! This meeting will be held in the Hippodrome Theatre’s lower level and bar, just before the 8 PM performance of Fahrenheit 451 on the mainstage. The cash bar will be open to those 21 or older! Book club goers are encouraged to view the mainstage show on this date, but no ticket purchase is necessary to participate.
They will also read poems aloud by book clubgoers during the meeting as a part of the Fahrenheit 451 poetry submission, time permitting. This submission closes on September 2nd, the opening night of Fahrenheit 451!
