“An evening of controversy and dissent.”

 

What do Orwell’s Animal Farm and The Bible have in common? What links Dan Brown and Mary Shelley? Why was Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland banned in Hunan province in China? Is The Very Hungry Caterpillar as subversive as The Satanic Verses?

Join acclaimed Essex authors Syd Moore and Daryl Easlea as they explore some of the most ‘dangerous’ books in the world and the reasons they have been banned.

The books discussed will include Fahrenheit 451, Da Vinci Code and Winnie the Pooh.

Part of 2014 Essex Book Festival.
