Sci-Fi on Tap: Childhood's End

Second book discussion on sci-fi utopias

On Wednesday, July 19 at 7:00 pm, the Peter White Library will be hosting the second meeting of its new book club, Sci-Fi on Tap, at the Ore Dock Brewing Company.


The second utopian novel, Childhoods End by Arthur C. Clarke, published in 1953, explores whether a utopian society can be forced on mankind.  When the alien Overlords mysteriously appear and take control of the Earth, they eliminate ignorance, disease, poverty and fear, all within the span of 50 years.  Does this make mankind happy?  Come to the club, enjoy a beer, and express your thoughts on this novel and utopia.
