Wine, Cheese, & Dialogue

« back to classes page
ClassGraphic We'll discuss the impact of power, freedom, and fear on modern society. Could a liberal democracy become a totalitarian regime? Could rights we have become accustomed to be taken away from us? Could religion, education, and the media be manipulated as tools of power and propaganda? These are just some of the questions sparked by Margaret Atwood’s powerful and thought-provoking novel The Handmaid’s Tale. Chosen as this year’s One Book One Northwestern selection, it brings the timely dialogue that is occurring around the world to the Northwestern campus. Come join the conversation. This is not a book club discussion. You don’t need to have read the book to participate. We’ll enjoy wine and cheese while we consider: Could it happen here?

One Book One Northwestern is a campus-wide reading program held at Northwestern University every year. In addition to campus-wide events, OLLI expands and supplements the program with events open to all OLLI members.
