Penguin Classics Book Club: The Island of Dr Moreau
6 July 2017
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.
For the second event in the book club series, Simon Winder, Publishing Director of Penguin Random House, chairs a discussion on The Island of Doctor Moreau by H. G. Wells, between leading academics Professor Deborah Bowman of St George’s, University of London, and Professor Roger Luckhurst of Birkbeck, University of London.
