Biography Discussion Group

The Biography Discussion Group will discuss Churchill and Orwell: The Fight for Freedom by Thomas Ricks (Penguin, $17.00). Winston Churchill, the WWII British prime minister, and George Orwell, author of 1984 and Animal Farm, never met. But they admired each other from afar and worked for the same purpose: to save the world from totalitarianism. Ricks entwines the biographies of two figures who fought in strikingly different ways to achieve similar goals. Other politicians roused their people; other writers warned of the Nazi and Soviet menaces. However, Ricks superbly illustrates that Churchill and Orwell made enduring cases for the necessity of moral and political fortitude in the face of authoritarianism.
