"Walk through the door into the Hopewell Public Library -- one doesn't 
even have to open a book, and one leaves more learned."
HPL patron, 2008

We always find something we like.
It's like going to the gourmet library. You have the best things."

Social Issues Book Club
Monday, March 27, 2017
7-8 pm Hopewell Public Library

It Can’t Happen Here is a cautionary tale about the fragility of democracy, an alarming, eerily timeless look at how fascism could take hold in America.

Written during the Great Depression, when the country was largely oblivious to Hitler’s aggression, it juxtaposes sharp political satire with the chillingly realistic rise of a president who becomes a dictator to save the nation from welfare cheats, sex, crime, and a liberal press.

Called “a message to thinking Americans” by the Springfield Republican when it was published in 1935, It Can’t Happen Here is a shockingly prescient novel that remains as fresh and contemporary as today’s news.

Social Issues Book Club
A social issue is a problem that influences a considerable number of the individuals within a society. It is often the consequence of factors extending beyond an individual's social issue. Our goal is to learn about and discuss various kinds of social issues that effect our society. Please join us every fourth Monday at the library.
