Join us as we discuss Animal Farm by George Orwell.

Manor Farm is like any other English farm, except for a drunken owner, Mr. Jones, incompetent workers and oppressed animals. Fed up with the ignorance of their human masters, the animals rise up in rebellion and take over the farm. Led by intellectually superior pigs like Snowball and Napoleon, the animals know how to take charge of their destiny and remove the inequities of their lives. But as time passes, the realize that things aren’t happening quite as expected. – (Amazon)
