Penguin Classics Book Club: A Clockwork Orange


29 June 2017
Fountain Room
Penguin Classics, in partnership with the Barbican, presents a series of book club events, each focusing on an iconic title from the Science Fiction genre. These events are open to all, although it is recommended that attendees have a familiarity with the title being discussed, and existing book club groups are particularly encouraged to attend.

In the first book club event of the series, Henry Eliot, Creative Editor of Penguin Classics, chairs a discussion on Anthony Burgess’s dystopian classic A Clockwork Orange. He is joined by journalist, performer and award-winning writer A. L. Kennedy and Professor Andrew Biswell, Director of the International Burgess Foundation, Professor of Modern Literature at Manchester Metropolitan University and editor of A Clockwork Orange: The Restored Edition.
