Events

At the SUT: Fahrenheit 451

to Sewanee Union Theatre (back of Thompson Union, on S. Carolina Ave.)

In recognition of “banned books” week, the SUT and DuPont Library bring you Fahrenheit 451. In a dystopian future, all printed materials—indeed anything that promotes free thought—are banned and destroyed by firemen who instead start fires, until one fireman begins to question the motives behind the book-burnings. Ray Bradbury's cautionary parable of an oppressive society which forbids creative works that challenge the status quo continues to resonate today. Free admission!
