“It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen … To mark the paper was the decisive act. In small clumsy letters, he wrote: April 4th, 1984.” — To celebrate the 75 Anniversary of the publishing of George Orwell’s novel and the 40 Anniversary of the film, IPH presents a special screening of Michael Radford’s film on the day protagonist Winston Smith begins rebelling against his oppressive government by keeping a forbidden diary.

**Stay after this screening for a talkback with Casey Cothran. Casey is a professor of English at Winthrop University and a member of Charlotte’s ‘Banned Book Reading Group.’ Her areas of research include British literature, mystery and detective fiction, and fairy tales.
