Free Screenings of Fahrenheit 451!
Co-sponsored by duPont Library in honor of Banned Books Week
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.
