Resistance Reading

“It’s a beautiful thing, the destruction of words”

Our friends at Blackwells have recommended a selection of dystopian books for members of the resistance to read. Get them on the Blackwells website before The Party destroy them.

You can also catch Blackwells at the Mathematics Institute with their banned books on 17th, 18th and 24th February.
